Whitley Chapel First School- Save our school

This petition had 1,439 supporters

Whitley Chapel First School has been earmarked for closure by Northumberland County Council, as part of sweeping changes to the local school system.

The closure of our school would adversely affect the lives of many young children and would be devastating for the local community. The school produces good academic results, and more importantly, happy children. Its location encourages a multitude of outdoor activities. It is financially viable. In its absence, children from the age of four years would have to be transported long distances to alternative schools. There is no rational reason for closing the school.

We have started this petition in the hope that in the face of public opposition, Northumberland County Council will reconsider its plans to close our and other first schools. Please sign to show your support for the needs and rights of our children and future pupils. Thank you
