Proposed closure of Eccles, Hargham and Wilby Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School

Closed 4 Apr 2014

Opened 24 Feb 2014


The governing body at Eccles, Hargham and Wilby CE VA Primary School has raised concerns about the future sustainability and financial viability of the school.  The school has 9 places available in each year group, but is regularly undersubscribed.  This January, there are 27 pupils on roll, of whom only 9 live in the catchment area.

The governing body, together with the Diocese of Norwich and Norfolk County Council, is proposing is to close Eccles, Hargham and Wilby CE VA Primary School from 31 August 2014.  

We have held two public meetings about the proposal and you can read the notes of these meetings by clicking on the links below. We want to know what you think of our proposal. Please read our consultation document below which sets out our proposal in more detail, and then complete our online survey.
