What happens to my views?

Any comments received by letter or email will be reported to the Cabinet when it comes to take a decision on the proposals.

Any comments you make will be made public, but the papers will be edited before publication to preserve anonymity in compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018.

Consultation events

There will be a number of consultation events hosted by the schools. Details will be sent out to the parents by each school.

We will also be hosting online events on the dates below. Please register to attend either event.

What happens next?

Feedback from the consultation will be considered by Cabinet. If the Cabinet decides to continue with the proposals, a formal statutory consultation will be undertaken to further review the progression of the school moves.

Statutory notices will be posted at the schools and published in the Liverpool Echo, in the Autumn Term 2022. There will be a period of four weeks during which anyone can comment on or object to the proposals.

Any comments or objections received during this period will be reported to Cabinet which will then decide whether or not to approve the proposals.
