COMPASS (a campaign group of parents and teachers in the catchment for Great Cornard Upper School in Suffolk) has now submitted a report to the DfE outlining our response to the proposal for a free 11-16 school in Stoke by Nayland. The bid for a free school in Stoke by Nayland is one of four secondary school proposals in Suffolk put forward by the Seckford Foundation - all of which are for new schools on the sites of middle schools which are due to close as part of the Schools Organisation Review here.
The COMPASS report outlines our concerns about the proposal itself, and about the impact we believe it would have on education in our area. We have requested a meeting with DfE to discuss our concerns at more length.
The report is available here CompassDfEResponse March 2012
