Two-tier School System For Purbeck?

What did you make of the idea to change Purbeck's school system from three-tiers to two?

Today councillors will find out as they review the results of the public consultation into the idea, which could see all first schools in Wool, Swanage and Langton Matravers changed into primary schools.

Parents have also been asked whether Bere Regis should become aprt of the Lytchett Minster pyramid of schools.

The County Council first proposed a change two years ago as part of a review to tackle more than 1,000 surplus places in the area.

Their Overview Committee will assess the results today before making recommendations to the Cabinet later this week (19th), where members will make a decision on the next steps in the review process.

John Nash, the council's director for childrens services has told HEART:

"We want to make sure everyone interested in the latest proposals for the Purbeck Schools Review has a chance to have their say before councillors decided on the best way forward."
