Change of age range at Langney Primary School

Closed 7 Jun 2018

Opened 11 May 2018


Langney Primary School currently offers early years provision for children aged 3-5. The governing body of the school wishes to lower the school’s age range from 3-11 to 2-11 to enable funded two year olds to access the nursery provision  within the school.

The aim of the proposal is to ensure that the nursery continues to offer high quality early education delivered by experienced and well-trained staff across the Early Years Foundation Stage.  This will build on the work already done by the school to secure good outcomes for all children in the future

Why We Are Consulting

The Council does not believe the proposal to lower the age range at Langney Primary School will have a negative impact on other early years provision, schools or academies in the surrounding area as it is about changing the admission arrangements for the nursery to enable the school to offer places to funded two year olds in the local area.

It is proposed to implement the proposal on 1 September 2018.  It is not intended to implement the proposal in stages.
