Schools: Nottinghamshire

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 9 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what recent representations he has received from Nottinghamshire County Council on the future of three to 18 schools in Nottinghamshire. (290861)

None. The planning of education provision in an area is the responsibility of the local authority (LA). Where LAs propose to make changes to local school provision, including closures, opening new schools and other alterations, they must follow a statutory process, which includes consultation with all those likely to be affected by the proposals. These are then decided under established local decision making arrangements. Ministers have no direct role in the process.
