Following the initial consultation on the proposal to close Camerton Church School, on 6 December 2017 Bath and North East Somerset Council Cabinet decided to proceed to the next stage of the process and to publish a statutory notice and full proposal proposing the closure of the school. This will allow a second consultation to run, called the Representation Period, for four weeks from Wednesday 7 February to 23.00 on Tuesday 6 March 2018, during which anyone will be able to object to, support or comment on the proposal. Following the end of the Representation Period, at the Cabinet meeting on 11 April 2018 the Cabinet will consider all responses received and the rationale behind the proposed closure and decide whether to go ahead with the proposal. If the decision is made to proceed, the school would close on 31 August 2018. Copies of the statutory notice and full proposal will be made available to all parents within the Church Valley Schools Federation on the 7 February.
