Andrew Murrison says he will back all the way the campaign to prevent the closure of special schools and their replacement with a ‘mega school’ near Devizes.
“I welcome the new money Wiltshire Council will spend on special needs provision but closing Larkrise and St Nicholas’ is clearly not what people want. I will work with my colleague Michelle Donelan in Chippenham to oppose the mega school concept that’s been put forward. We hope to see the relevant minister shortly and note that campaigners are planning legal action. I do hope, even now, that the council thinks again and I’ll be doing all I can to persuade it to change course. “
