The Department does not record or hold this information centrally.

Consultation on a proposal to close an academy is not statutory and is dependent upon the individual circumstances of each case.

In cases where a consultation is undertaken, the process is administered locally, either by the local authority or the academy trust, to allow those directly affected by the proposals to provide their comments.
