Hillbourne School and Nursery (2 April - 30 April 2014)

Hillbourne School and Nursery proposal to change the lower age limit

The Borough of Poole has approved the proposal to change the lower age range of Hillbourne School and Nursery from 3-11 to 4-11 and to close the maintained Nursery with effect from 1 September 2014.

The reasons for the decision are as follows:

  • the nursery class was opened in 2001 and has never reached its capacity;
  • this low demand for places at the nursery means sessions are only available to local parents for the morning class; and
  • the current childcare sufficiency assessment indicates that there are not enough children of pre-school age in the local area to sustain two providers for pre-school provision.
