Three East Riding schools set to close

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.
