Petition Closed

Acklington C of E first school is a wonderful small school in the heart of Northumberland that has fallen under threat of closure due to lack of funding and pupils. We are starting this petition in hope that if we get our story out there we might be able to save our school for our children and community.

Our school is a one-of-a-kind in the area, currently teaching 13 pupils with the capacity for 45 as we are not well enough known in the area. We are hoping to change that by saving the school and gaining more pupils. As the school is small the children benefit from almost 1-to-1 learning which allows the children to learn quicker and progress faster in our fun environment. They have a wonderful outdoor play area with a forest garden to explore and learn in with the help of the wonderful teaching staff. We also have free breakfast club facilities and after school club which make us perfect for working parents. Most importantly, the children love the school and it would be awful for them to see it go.

It would be amazing if you could help us out by signing the petition and sharing it to save our school for the benefit of our whole community. Thank you!!
