Devon County Council looks to merge infants and junior schools in Bideford to create one primary school.

Devon County Council is currently consulting on plans to merge an infants school and junior school in Bideford.

The plans would see the Pynes Infant School and Nursery merged with West Croft Junior School to form one primary school at the site in Coronation Road.

Parents of pupils have been given a letter outlining the plans to combine the schools to form one with a capacity of 630 pupils aged three to 11.

The consultation will run until June 29, with an information event for anyone affected by the proposals at Pynes Infant School on June 11 from 3.30pm until 6.30pm.

If implemented, the merger would take place in September-October time this year.
