A consultation looking for views on potential changes to a small number of West Sussex schools , including Compton and Up Marden CE School, has launched today.

The survey can be found here

Five small primary schools have been identified as potentially vulnerable. As a result, views are being sought on options that are being explored which may include federation, merger, relocation, no change or closure, at the following schools:

  • Clapham and Patching CE Primary School, Clapham, Worthing

  • Compton and Up Marden CE Primary School, Compton, Chichester

  • Rumboldswhyke CE Infants’ School, Chichester

  • Stedham Primary School, Stedham, Midhurst

  • Warninglid Primary School, Warninglid, Haywards Heath

People can give their views online at the have you say website or by filling in a paper consultation form, which will soon be available in West Sussex libraries. The consultation closes on 25 November 2019.

Public meetings about each school will be held throughout October and November - see the consultation website for details. The first public meeting about Clapham and Patching CE Primary School will take place on 8 October, 6.30pm-8pm at The Angmering School, Station Road, Angmering, BN16 4HH.
