Witham: New use for old school building?

Children unable to attend school due to anxiety or illness could be taught at an empty primary school in Witham.

Chipping Hill School in Church Street has been vacant since earlier this year, when the school moved to a new building in Owers Road.

An Essex County Council spokesman said: “Essex County Council is currently investigating the re-use of the property for alternative education and children centred services.

“We anticipate the outcome of the investigations being reported by the end of October so that a decision on the property can be taken before the end of the year."

Its not just about getting ill its about those also I think who have been bullied in the past and the thought of going back into a mainstream school petrifies them. Good idea if means kids get back into school and already has all the facilities rather than getting lost in the system and in an accessable place :-)
