An East Yorkshire primary school threatened with closure looks to have been saved.East Riding Council wanted to close Dunswell, Langtoft and Gembling primaries.
But following a massive campaign by parents and teachers the Department of Education has given the go-ahead for Dunswell to break away from the local authority and be taken under the wing of Swanland Primary School Academy Trust.
The future of Langtoft and Gambling primary schools is still unsure and council chiefs are expected to approve their closure next week.
