Letter: Ask for school option rankings

Local Liberal Democrats are supporting residents and parents in their call for the consultation on the future of Cragg Vale Primary School to be fair, and to consider the consequences of it.

Calderdale’s Labour Cabinet is proposing to move Cragg Vale Primary School onto the Calder High School site, saying that the current building isn’t safe, even with the large government grant which the council applied for to fix it.

But retaining the school on the current site isn’t one of the options that they’re offering people. This seems to be unfair.

It would be better if they asked people to rank the options including keeping the school where it is, and then they would get a true reflection of people’s views.
