Bodmin's new school

I am delighted to see reports that the Secretary of State for Education has approved Cornwall Council’s bid to establish a new special free school.

They have stated that they are working closely with the local authority and are now inviting applications from proposer groups to open and run the new school.

They will be looking for applications that demonstrate a commitment to partnership working to create schools that will deliver what the local area and its families need, and ultimately provide an opportunity for the children that attend them to achieve better outcomes.

The new free school, set to be located in Bodmin, will help provide a greater number of good specialist places for children, often vulnerable and disadvantaged, in the constituency.
