People power is alive and well in Godalming.

Surrey County Council has backed down from its ill-conceived stand to close Green Oaks School in Godalming. So three cheers for parent-power!

After 94% of the 1,000 respondents to the ill-thought-out  “tick box” Surrey County Council consultation, the authority has taken the sensible step of stepping back and actually considering what harm the closure would inflict on the town of Godalming – in particular, Ockford. 

Please note the last sentence of the RECOMMENDATION!  Closing the school would result in a significant capital cost to the Council for providing the places at alternative settings.
