PARISH COUNCIL NEWS from the June 2019 Meeting
EMBERTON SCHOOL – A delegated decision by Milton Keynes Council regarding the future of Emberton School was due to take place on the 28th May. The meeting has now been postponed to the 18th June. Emberton Parish Council will be sending a representative to the meeting to speak on behalf of residents that have made their concerns known regarding the proposal. Namely that; a) the demographics are revisited to take into account the increased planned development in the Olney ward b) parents were not given Emberton School as an option in May 2018 for September admissions for new and for existing pupils of the school. The school’s federation did not advertise an open day in October 2019 for new pupils, nor was Emberton School offered as an option in March 2019. c) should the proposal to close the school go ahead, Emberton Parish Council seeks assurance that the School House Fund is returned to the parish of Emberton and not subsumed into the existing village school federation funds. d) should the proposal go ahead, the parish council requests clear direction on the future plans for the school building and field and seeks assurance that there will be a meaningful dialogue between the Federation Governors and the village on these plans.
