I’m now totally confused over whether the Thurston School Organisational Review (SOR) is a review, or just a pretence that the council is listening. Whilst many of us were of the opinion anything we said during the school consultations wouldn’t change the councils direction, and the move to two tier schools would go ahead anyway, I hadn’t expected this to be the council’s official position.
I’m referring to Councillor Newman’s interview on Radio Suffolk where he said "the decision is not about whether we do it or not", so essentially the decision had already been made to move to two tier schools. Yet when I fill in the online SOR questionnaire it asks “Would you like to see a two-tier pattern of schools in the Thurston Area?”
