General Election Thursday 12th December

8th November 2019
You will be aware that a general election will be held
on Thursday 12th December. It is our understanding
that, as is usual, school will be called upon for use
as a polling station. As you will appreciate, the
turnout for the election is likely to be substantial so,
for safeguarding reasons we are unable to keep
school open.
We are aware of reports that the Secretary of State
for Education has advised that schools should not
be used as polling stations. However, we have
been previously advised that no other suitable
alternatives are available within the area so it is
extremely unlikely that an alternative could be
arranged. In the unlikely event that this changes,
we will advise you immediately.
