I am deeply disappointed by the Department for Education’s decision to close Discovery New School from next April and am disturbed by the failure of management and lack of support. As a father myself I share the great concern which will be felt by parents and have called in Parliament for the Education Secretary to both ensure his officials work with and assist West Sussex County Council to find suitable school places for those children affected, in addition to seeking assurances that the school buildings will be used for education purposes going forward.
