The Governing Body of Somerford Primary School

Notice ID: BOU0450615

Notice effective from
20th January 2018 to 19th February 2018

The Governing Body of Somerford Primary School is consulting on its proposal to close the school's maintained nursery provision known as Goslings.
The nursery was not full in the academic year of 2016-17 and was operating at a loss which the school had to top up. In the academic year 2017-18, the numbers of children attending the nursery has reduced further and it is now costing approximately £10,000 a term from the school's budget intended for school aged children to keep the nursery open.
The Governors believe this is an impossible amount of money for the school to subsidise, particularly in a climate of reduced school budgets and increased expectations. Procedure for responses: support, objections and comments
The formal proposal document can be found at
If you wish to make any comments please do so in writing by sending them to or by post to Somerford Primary School, Draper Road, Christchurch, BH23 3AS before the end of the consultation period which is midday on 19th February 2018. Please mark your comments for the attention of the Governing Body.
