Consultation process

It is anticipated that the Trust would widely publicise the listening period through email and information on the Trust website. DCC would also publicise the listening period to stakeholders and publish on the DCC Have Your Say website.


As an Academy School, the Trust will be required to carry out a Listening Period following a substantive decision to close the school by the DfE. The Listening Period will provide information on why the school is closing and is an opportunity for stakeholders and other interested parties to submit their views on how the closure process can be best managed. The DfE considers the following individuals and organisations to be interested parties: the Local Authority, local district council, parish council, county councillors, parents of any pupils at schools affected by the closure including early years provision, trade unions, MP.
