School Organisation Plan 2021-2024

This report asks Cabinet and FACS to note the second iteration of the School Organisation Plan 2021-2024 for Northumberland, the first iteration being for 2018-2021.  The report also asks Cabinet to approve the circulation of the plan to schools and academies for information and feedback prior to its subsequent publication.


The report asks Cabinet and FACS to note that School Organisation Plans are no longer required statutorily.  However, Cabinet approval was given to publish a School Organisation Plan for Northumberland in 2018 in order to provide schools, parents, partner organisations and interested parties with an overview of the school system in the county and to highlight trends, plans and potential proposals in relation to schools.  This latest version of the plan covers the period 2021 to 2024, but it will be subject to annual update in order to capture changing information or circumstances relating to schools and academies as appropriate.
