This eight week consultation is to gather opinions on a proposal to close Emberton School from September 2019.

This consultation will end on 17 March 2019 and seeks views from those directly involved with Emberton School to determine whether the council should progress to the next stage to publish a statutory notice and propose the closure of the school. 

Please read the linked document on this page and send us your views on this proposal by emailing  It would be helpful if you could tell us if you are a parent/carer, a local resident or a member of staff at another local school.

Feedback from this consultation will be considered by the Cabinet Member for Children and Families in April 2019.  If the decision is taken to proceed to the next stage, a relevant statutory notice would be published in June 2019 and would provide a 4 week period for people to make representations, as is prescribed by law. Subject to these statutory processes, the final decision could take place in September 2019, to enable the school to close during the 2019/20 academic year.
