Par­ents’ shock

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

THE clo­sure move has been crit­i­cised by coun­cil­lors as ‘short­sighted’.

A pe­ti­tion en­ti­tled ‘Stop the clo­sure of Ne­wall Green High School’ has al­ready been signed by more than 300 peo­ple.

A Face­book group set up by par­ents has more than 500 mem­bers.

Toni Bryson wrote on Face­book: “The kids were told be­fore I knew.”

Natalie Bryson said: “I am really wor­ried about my daugh­ter in year 9. This is really go­ing to set her back.”

Rachel Heap said: “This is go­ing to be hor­ren­dous for all staff and pupils - and even more trau­ma­tis­ing for chil­dren with spe­cial ed­u­ca­tional needs.”

Coun Tracey Rawl­ins told the M.E.N: “We are shocked to hear this news and are ab­so­lutely op­posed to this.”
