That having undertaken the required preliminary checks, the Executive Member resolved that the four key issues listed in paragraph 8.2 have been satisfied and there can be a determination of the proposals.

That the following proposal be determined:

1. To cease to maintain Burnt Yates Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School with effect from 31 August 2018.

2. To extend the catchment area of Ripley Endowed CE VC Primary School and Bishop Thornton CE VC Primary School with effect from 1 September 2018 to jointly serve the area currently served by Burnt Yates CE VA Primary School.

Reasons for the decision:

PLEASE NOTE This decision was originally published on or near the date of the decision and so call in no longer applies. It has been re-published as part of the change in committee management system that we use.

On 13 March 2018 the Executive approved the publication of statutory proposals to close Burnt Yates CE VA Primary School with effect from 31August 2018. This followed careful consideration of the responses to public consultation carried out by the Children and Young People’s Service. The statutory proposals were published on 22 March 2018, giving four weeks until 19 April 2018 for representations to be made. Following the publication of the Statutory Notices, no responses were received by the end of the notice period of 19 April 2018.

Under the arrangements agreed by Executive on 25 September 2007, school organisation decisions, for which the decision maker is the Local Authority, will normally be taken by the County Council’s Executive or, if there are no objections to the Statutory Notice, the decision is delegated to the Executive Members for Schools.
