Parents fight ‘closure happy’ council over future of St Teresa’s

Parents of pupils at a Birkdale school are vowing to fight the council tooth and nail over its potential destruction of services.

The council want people to give their views on the future of St Teresa’s school in Birkdale which some fear could see the council looking for excuses to shut the school down in the near feature.

As a result of the decline in requests for school places Sefton Council want explore alternative opportunities for future provision.

At a meeting on the October 3, 2019 the Council’s Cabinet agreed to proceed with the request from the Governing Body of St Teresa’s Catholic Infant School to commence the statutory consultation process.

Parents are now begging the local community to give their views to the council to keep the school open.
