Campaigners who have been fighting plans to close three schools in East Yorkshire say they do not feel they have been listened to by cabinet members on East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has confirmed it intends to close three schools following the conclusion of a consultation. They are Dunswell, Gembling and Langtoft schools.
A final decision will be made in six weeks' time.
Children who currently attend Dunswell will go to Kingwood Park school, which should be finished by mid-summer next year.
Two recommendations have been made regarding pupils at Gembling, including talking with local headteachers about additional alternatives and writing to parents in the catchment area about why some children will go to other schools in the area.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has agreed to close Dunswell School at the end of August, along with Gembling School. There is anger from campaigners, who feel they were not listened too.
Campaigners say they will carry on the fight if a ruling to close 3 schools in the East Riding goes ahead.
Dunswell, Langtoft and Gembling schools are at risk of closure and councillors will today discuss the issue.
