Target Groups


Response was very low - only 5 written responses were received. One was very positive, and three were generally positive, with no strong feelings as long as services were protected. The remaining response was extremely negative but only because the respondent believed the change would have a negative impact for her family. This was a misunderstand of the change, and the Centre manager contacted her to explain, after which she was not opposed to the change.

Actions Taken

The Centre manager is making changes to staffing rota and offer to children from September onwards to implement the changes as proposed. The school and the Children's Centre are working on the physical changes needed to return the room to school use instead of Centre use. Legal have been instructed on the issue of amending the lease to reflect the change.
