THE SCHOOL CLOSURE REVIEW PANELS

A Panel will then decide whether or not to allow the closure to proceed. The Panel may place conditions on the closure, or remit the proposal back to the authority to reconsider. If the Panel refuses consent to the closure, the local authority cannot publish a further closure proposal in relation to the school for 5 years, unless there is a significant change in the school’s circumstances.
