Permanent Raising of the Age Range at Brunshaw Primary School, Burnley

On 3 March 2022, Cabinet agreed to a statutory notice being published to begin a representation period on the future of the nursery provision currently delivered by Brunshaw Primary School, Burnley. A statutory proposal document was published in relation to the school discontinuing the nursery provision by permanently raising its age range from 3-11 years to 4-11 years, with effect from 31 August 2022.
