Consultation on the proposal to lower the age range of Southcott Lower School

from 4-9 to 2-9 years


Southcott Pre-school opened on 12th April 2016 at the request of Central Bedfordshire Council to increase the local provision for pre-school children.  The school was aware that it was admitting children younger than the age range of the school but that this was permitted by the Department for Education on a temporary basis for a period of up to 2 years. Since opening, the Pre-school has been a great success and we believe it will continue to be viable into the future. We are therefore required to lower the age range of the school.
