Parents to attend meeting on school's future
PARENTS are expected to pack a public meeting tonight about closure plans for Dunswell Primary School.
East Riding Council, which is one of the worst-funded authorities in the country, is looking at how many schools it can justify maintaining.
The authority is consulting parents over moves to close three primaries – Dunswell, Gembling and Langtoft.
Dunswell Primary is financially viable but 75 per cent of its 88 pupils come from outside the catchment area.

Campaigning parents are fighting the move and handed in a 3,000-plus name protest petition to the council.
The authority is looking to shut the school in July 2014 and transfer catchment area pupils to Woodmansey Primary School.
Tonight's 6pm meeting at Dunswell Sports Hall is for parents of Dunswell and Woodmansey pupils and other interested parties. The consultation period ends on April 15 and cabinet will consider the proposal on April 23.
