Statutory Proposal Change of age range

Statutory Consultation on the Proposed Change of Age Range at Grove Primary School

Worcestershire County Council is proposing to change the age range of Grove Primary School from 2-11 to 3-11 from 1st September 2024.  This will allow the school to operate an Early Years Foundation Unit for pre-school age children the year before they are due to start school and reception age children.

Any proposed changes at community schools must be published and an adequate representation period provided to allow interested parties to comment on the proposal before a decision made. This proposal has been made in agreement with the Governing Body and Senior Leadership of the school.

The four-week representation period will run from Monday 10th June 2024 and will close at noon on Monday 8th July 2024. Details of the proposal and response form can be found below, and responses must be made via the online link by the closing date of the representation period.
