Summary

White Spire School is a community special school in Bletchley that currently caters for pupils aged from 5 to 19 years (Year 1 to Year 14). There are currently 133 pupils on roll at the school. The governing body and the council are proposing to lower the age range at the school to 4 years so that the school would cater for pupils from the age of 4 up to the age of 19.  This means that the school would be able to admit pupils into the reception year. This would be achieved through a combined Reception/Year 1 class with effect from September 2019.

Purpose

Notice is given in accordance with section 19(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 and the ‘Making prescribed alterations to maintained schools – Statutory guidance for proposers and decision makers, April 2016’, that Milton Keynes Council proposes to change the age range at White Spire School from 5 to 19 years to 4 to 19 years with effect from 1 September 2019.
