The governors of Royds School have reviewed the information and propose to consult on temporarily closing Post 16 provision as of July 2020 with no Year 12 students being admitted in September 2019. Students who are currently enrolled in Post 16 will be fully supported to finish their studies. The school would review viability and interest from current Year 9 students when they reach the end of Year 10 to see if there is sufficient demand to justify re-joining the Post 16 Partnership. This would then be reviewed with the current Year 8 students to assess whether the demand is sustainable. If this is unlikely then the school will seek a permanent Post 16 closure.
In order for stakeholders to raise questions and to promote understanding of the decision, there will be two public meetings held. They will be a short presentation followed by a question and answer session with Mrs Robbins, Headteacher. It is advisable to attend the consultation prior to responding to the consultation. They will take place at Royds School on:
- 20th November 2018, 18.00-19.00
- 28th November 2018, 18.00-19.00
The detailed consultation document, Frequently Asked Questions and consultation return form are available below. Please note, answers to any questions posed during the consultation will be added to the Frequently Asked Questions document.
