TOWN and village schools up and down the country are facing funding difficulties in delivering education to this country’s next generation.

This is especially the case in rural areas like the Cotswolds and parts of North Wiltshire which always seem to miss out.

Nearly all schools are facing funding cuts and many are being forced to close in the battle to keep the costs of educational services down.

However, in the polar opposite of options facing Lea and Garsden C of E Primary School, whether to close or to expand, Wiltshire Council has an opportunity to get the future of schooling right for the children of Lea and Malmesbury.

It appears certain that the school is destined to change significantly, it will either grow in its current location, perhaps by as much as 50 per cent, or become larger as it moves to Filands in Malmesbury.

Whatever happens, the council must listen to the opinions of the school and parents of its children in order to secure the best education for future pupils.
