MP urged to back middle school campaign
Published at 07:52, Wednesday, 05 December 2012
CAMPAIGNERS fighting proposals to close Allendale Middle School have enlisted the help of Hexham’s MP Guy Opperman.
The group wants Mr Opperman to put a series of critical questions to Northumberland County Council’s education officers on their behalf.
They feel officers are not addressing their concerns about plans to either convert Allendale Middle into a academy, or close it and turn Allendale, Whitfield and Shaftoe Trust first schools into primary schools.
Allendale parish councillor Marc Hydleman has been compiling the list – which includes a question about the future of the middle school site – with the help of the wider community.
