Stop St Rose's school from closing
FEARS have been raised over the future of St Rose’s School in Stroud. The school, which last year celebrated its centenary, could face closure due to a substantial fall in the number of pupils. St Rose's School receives most of its funding from Gloucestershire County Council based on the total number of pupils at the school. There are concerns that the drop in students is due to changes in government funding for education of children with special needs, which came into effect in April this year. Urgent action is now being taken because the school, owned by The Dominican Sisters Congregation, is no longer financially viable as it cannot subsidies the future losses which are forecast. WE WANT TO STOP THE SCHOOL FROM CLOSING. this school does amazing things for its pupils as i've seen first hand.
