The Interim Executive Governing Board ('IEGB') of Virgo Fidelis Convent school, with the support of the Archdiocese of Southwark and Croydon Council is proposing to close Virgo Fidelis Convent school. The IEGB is proposing the school’s closure because they believe that it is no longer viable – a view which is shared by the Archdiocese and the council.
Croydon Council as the Local Authority is seeking the views of those that will be directly affected, and anyone with an interest. This consultation, known as a pre-publication consultation, will run from 1st to 23rd October 2020. Consultation responses will be presented to the cabinet member for children, young people and learning and the council’s executive director for children, families and education. Subject to their approval, this consultation will be followed by the publication of the statutory notice, which will start a four-week representation period when any person can send objections or comments to Croydon Council.
