I am grateful for this friendly correction, and apologise if I misled anyone.
I agree that, in England, proposals for changing the status of a school now go to the local school organisation committee, and the Secretary of State is not involved (though she may take the initiative for changes to overcome excess of insufficiency of places).
This governor gave no address, but something made me think - I may have been wrong - that it was in Wales where the Secretary of State still arbitrates in disputed cases.
But I should certainly have made it clear what happened in England.
