CONSULTATION ON THE PROPOSED CLOSURE OF THE NURSERY CLASS – APPLICATION TO THE EDUCATION AND SKILLS FUNDING AGENCY TO CHANGE THE AGE RANGE OF PUPILS AT ANGEL OAK ACADEMY AND VARYING THE ACADEMY’S DETERMINED ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS FOR ADMISSION IN SEPTEMBER 2024
Due to very low pupil numbers, we are consulting with stakeholders on the possibility of closing the nursery at Angel Oak Academy from September 2023.
Full details are included on the below document, along with guidance on how you can have your say.
A consultation meeting at Angel Oak Academy will take place on Monday 15th May at 4pm, during which you can raise any questions you may have.
Although the decision will not be made until July, we encourage prospective nursery parents for September 2023 to consider alternative options, alongside Angel Oak, so as to secure an alternative place if the nursery does close.
