Acting head teacher in upbeat mood about village primary’s future and says options to save it may soon be unveiled
Musbury Primary School – under threat through falling pupil numbers – is holding an open day today (Friday, Septemebr 27) to highlight its strengths.
Youngsters have been shwoingoff their work to a steady stream of visitors – including the village’s county councillor Andrew Moulding - who went along to hear about the on-going campaign to save the school.
Acting head teacher John Montgomery is optimistic about its future.
He told The Herald: “We have had a very positive and upbeat start to the year and we are hoping that this can continue.
“There are on-going discussions about the school’s future and there are possible options that may present themselves soon.”
Currently there are eight pupils at the school which has capacity for more than 80.
There is also a thriving Musbury Moles Playgroup based on the site.
