Proposal to seek permission from the Secretary of State for Education to close Summerfield Education Centre on 31 August 2021

Ends Friday 20 November 2020

On 11th February 2020 the Portfolio Holder for Children, Education and Skills considered a report detailing future options for alternative provision in Solihull which included the options for Summerfield Education Centre.

It is the view of the Council that Summerfield Education Centre is not expected to be viable as a converted academy. Therefore the Portfolio Holder has authorised officers to undertake a period of consultation with parents, schools and the wider community on whether to seek permission from the Secretary of State for Education to close Summerfield Education Centre.

The consultation starts on 5th October 2020 and will run until 20th November 2020 (6 school weeks)

More details can be found in our consultation document.
