Overview

Surrey County Council in consultation with the Diocese of Guildford, is proposing to discontinue Ripley CofE Primary School, with effect from 31 August 2018. 

Why We Are Consulting

Notice is hereby given in accordance with section 15 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 (as amended by the Education Act 2011) and the School Organisation (Establishment and Discountinuance of Schools) Regulations 2013 that Surrey County Council, in consultation with the Diocese of Guildford, intends to discontinue the following Voluntary Controlled school with effect from the 31 August 2018:

All children attending Ripley CofE Primary School at the time the decision is determined would be offered places at alternative schools in the area. The school currently has 38 children on roll, 29 of which will require primary school places in September 2018.

Support with home to school transport would be provided for eligible pupils provided they meet the criteria, which can be found on the Surrey County Council website at: https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/school-transport/under-16-transport-to-school. Consideration would also be given to individual circumstances.
