EXPIRED Morchard Bishop C of E (VA) Primary School: Proposal to lower age range

It is proposed by the Governors of Morchard Bishop CE (VA) Primary School to lower the age range of the school from 4-11 years to 2-11 years of age with effect from October 1st, 2021.

Morchard Bishop CE (VA) Governing Board took over the running of the village Pre-School in April 2016, 18 months after the Pre-School moved onto the school site.  This proposal is concerned with the Pre-School becoming part of the school rather than operating as an extended service run by the Governing Body.  Schools that extend the age range are usually described as having a ‘Nursery class’ rather than a Pre-School.

The consultation ends on 2nd July 2021.  If any stakeholders have any views or comments they can be sent to:- with the subject header of: Consultation – Change of Age Range.
