Pynes Community Infant & Nursery and West Croft Junior Schools: Proposal to Amalgamate.
Following consultation and the Brief Notice period, Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member has reviewed and approved the proposals to amalgamate Pynes Infant and West Croft Junior Schools with effect from September 2015.
The initial consultation took place from 1-29 June 2015 and no objections were received. The Brief Notice period, which is a more formal consultation period, provided a further representation period and commenced on 1 July 2015 with a closing date of 30 July 2015. No responses were received.
The Governing Bodies of the schools and Devon County Council consider the provision of one single primary school will offer the best educational opportunities for children and families in the area. The combined schools will remain on their present sites and will have capacity for 630 pupils.
