Hands off our schools

Tonight at a meeting in St Mabyn, Mike Peters (Head of Service – Children, Schools and Families) confirmed that the schools would remain in their villages. The plans for Longstone have been completely dropped and no other sites, remote or otherwise, are being looked into. No Statutory Consultation will be entered into for an amalgamated school.

Of that 97.3% (587) voted YES to keep both schools in both villages and 16 people voted NO.
