John, Alan and I had a meeting last week about the BSF issue in Eaglescliffe. Eaglescliffe's problems are inextricably linked to those of Yarm and Ingleby Barwick because so many children from the latter go to the other two schools. This is partly parental choice but mainly because there isn't a school big enough in IB to take everyone.
We had a very good and frank exchange of views with officers and are reassured that they understand the pros and cons of the various suggested sites in Eaglescliffe for a rebuild of the school. We await now the outcome of their comparison of sites and assessment of which one(s) should go forward for further investigation or consultation.
