Consultation on a proposal to create an 11-19 school for the Whitby area
North Yorkshire County Council and the governing bodies of Caedmon School and Whitby Community College would like to hear your views on a proposal to bring the two schools together to create a single 11-19 school. The results of this consultation will be fed back to the governing bodies and the County Council's Executive Member for Schools. Following that, North Yorkshire County Council Executive will decide whether to publish statutory notices to propose the change. This in effect provides a second opportunity for people to voice their views. It is anticipated that a final decision will be taken in late May 2014. If approved, the changes will take place from September 2014.
The consultation will begin on 24 January 2014 and run until 28 February 2014. The consultation includes a special meeting at the Spa Pavillion, Whitby from 6.30 - 7.30pm on Thursday 6th February 2014 which you are welcome to attend. For more information and for details of how you can take part in this consultation, please refer to the letter brought home by your child today or click on the links below:

Parent View Website

You can find the survey at parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. We appreciate you taking the time to do this.
