Tiny school faces chop

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

A RU­RAL school with only two pupils is un­der threat of clo­sure.

The num­ber of chil­dren at Bleas­dale Church of Eng­land Pri­mary in Lan­cashire’s For­est of Bow­land has plum­meted from 16 in five years.

And by next Septem­ber it will have only one pupil.

Gov­er­nors fear the school will no longer be eco­nom­i­cally vi­able and are in talks with the county coun­cil about clo­sure.

A de­ci­sion will be made next July.
