What is happening?

Pinfold Primary School

Notice is given in accordance with section 15(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 that Lancashire County Council, PO Box 100, County Hall, Preston, PR1 0LD intends to close Pinfold Primary School, Pinfold Lane, Scarisbrick, L40 8HR, on 19 April 2024.

Notice is also given in accordance with section 19(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 that Lancashire County Council, PO Box 100, County Hall, Preston, PR1 0LD intends to expand Kingsbury Primary School by creating a satellite provision on the site of Pinfold Primary School on 22 April 2024.

There are currently no children attending the school site. Any children who would wish to attend Pinfold Primary School can be accommodated by local schools no more than 2 miles away.

The proposal arises due to a fall in pupil numbers and the associated impact on the educational and financial viability of the school.

The local authority's opinion is that the two proposals are related and are therefore published together as a single proposal. This Notice is an extract from the complete proposal. Copies of the complete proposal can be inspected at Pinfold Primary School at the address above; at Lancashire County Council; at the West Lancs Borough Council office; and local libraries. Requests for
copies can be emailed to Kirsty.Roberts@lancashire. gov.uk or sent in writing to Kirsty Roberts, Asset Management Team, Lancashire County Council, PO Box 100, County Hall, Preston, PR1 0LD. Copies can also be accessed through http://www.lancashire.gov.uk/ council/performance-inspections-reviews/children-education-and-families/school-organisation-reviews.aspx.

Any person may object to or make comments on the proposal by posting them to Kirsty Roberts at the above address. Responses can also be emailed to Kirsty.Roberts@lancashire.gov.uk. To be considered as part of the decision-making process to determine the proposal, responses must be received no later than 15 March 2024.
