This consultation is being undertaken to advise you of proposals concerning Long Lawford Primary School, and to invite you to tell us what you think of the proposals. This is part of a statutory consultation process that Warwickshire County Council is managing in partnership with the school’s Governing Body.  The proposal is:

  1. To change the age range at Long Lawford Primary School from 3 - 11 to 4 - 11 from September 2023. The published admission number (PAN) for the main school will not be affected by these proposals. The PAN for the maintained nursery class will cease to exist, as nursery provision will be offered in a more flexible way, according to parental demand.
  2. To run all nursery provision for 2,3 and eligible 4 year olds via Community Facility Powers under the direction of the School Governors from September 2023

Details of the proposal and how to provide feedback can be found in the consultation documentation below

The representation period will last 4 weeks from Monday 5 June 2023 to Sunday 2 July 2023.
