Chestnut Primary School, Brixham

I met with Head, Glen Paige and teacher, Bill Callaghan to see Chestnut Primary for myself, to listen to the concerns of teachers and to visit their newly opened playpod.

I am in no doubt that small schools are really valued by children and their parents and hope that the Council will act quickly to reassure families once the consultation on the future of schools in Brixham is complete. It is a sad reality that the number of primary school age children in Brixham is no longer sufficient to support the current number of schools and so all the options need to be considered. If you have a view, please let me know.
