Statutory Proposal to remove the dyslexia unit at Northway Primary School, Dodds Lane, Maghull L31 9AA
Northway Primary School currently has a six place resource unit for pupils with dyslexia. The number of pupils requiring places at the unit has reduced in recent years. In September 2017 all pupils currently attending will move to secondary school and there are no ongoing statutory assessments that are likely to result in a placement at Northway Primary School.
Sefton Council is proposing to remove the dyslexia unit at Northway Primary School with effect from August 31, 2017. A copy of the complete proposal is available below together with a copy of the public notice which was published in the Champion newspaper on May 17, 2017. A copy of the notice is also being displayed at all entrances to the school.
Within four weeks from the date of publication, any person may send in a response supporting, objecting or commenting on the proposal to the School Organisation & Capital Programme Team, Sefton Council, Town Hall, Oriel Road, Bootle L20 7AE or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The final date for sending in written representations was June 14, 2017.
