We Asked

We asked for your comments on the proposal to change the age range at Cotteridge Primary School which would remove nursery provision with effect from September 2020.

You Said

We received 79 responses to the consultation via this consultation webpage and by email. The comments were from families of pupils, school staff and local residents. Most comments were in objection the proposal.

We Did

The responses were reviewed by the Education Infrastructure team at Birmingham City Council and further consideration was given to the circumstances of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency.

Birmingham City Council is giving notice that the proposal to change the age range at Cotteridge Primary School, to remove nursery provision, has been withdrawn.

The withdrawal of this proposal is due to the current circumstances of the COVID-19 emergency and circumstances of pupils at the school. The school closed during the statutory consultation period and, as there had been a high level of public interest, the Local Authority could not ensure that all interested parties would have been able to make comments (representation) during the statutory consultation period.

The formal withdrawal notice is attached at the bottom of this webpage and a letter has been issued to the Chair of Governors and Head Teacher of the school.
