School organisation in Cheshire East

As the Strategic Commissioner of school places the Local Authority has a statutory duty to ensure that there are sufficient places in its schools to meet the demands for residents in its area. 

Local authorities and schools can make proposals in relation to school organisation. The Department for Education has provided school organisation guidance for both proposers and decision makers.

Cheshire East has determined their own decision making process where it is the proposer/decision maker. This process was approved by Cabinet at a meeting held on 27 May 2014.

School organisation framework

The School Organisation Framework is a key document in the strategic planning and provision of school places. Through working in partnership Cheshire East will manage the demand for places and the organisation of school provision to ensure that every child and young person has access to the best educational opportunities.

Currently this document is being reviewed and a new document will be available in the Autumn term.
