Outcome of local consultation on 2 year old offer

25th May 2018
Outcome of consultation on proposal to change the age range of West Walker Primary School to 2-11 years from 1 September 2018
At a meeting on 24 May the Board of Newcastle East mixed multi Academy Trust (NEAT) considered the responses to the local consultation about its proposal to enable West Walker Primary School to offer free childcare places to two year-olds who qualify for the government's targeted offer from September.
Responses received from parents supported the proposal and the local authority confirmed that it had no objections to the school offering 12 places for 2 year olds from September.
NEAT has now submitted an application to the Regional Schools Commissioner at the Department for Education to seek formal approval of the change to the age range.  We'll let you know their decision as soon as possible
