Two March schools are a step closer to merging following a decision by Cambridgeshire County Council yesterday (Tuesday, March 10).

Members of the children and young people committee agreed to publish a statutory notice to amalgamate Maple Grove Infant School and Westwood Junior School to form the new Westwood Primary School.

The new school would continue to operate on both the existing sites from September.

The county will now be taking representations until April 8 and a final decision will be made on April 16.
