Two primary schools in Lewes could close due to falling pupil numbers after consultations were launched yesterday (Friday, April 15).

Public consultations over the proposed closure of Pells CE Primary School and Rodmell CE Primary School will end on May 27.

All students would be offered places at other schools but East Sussex County Council said both schools struggle to attract enough children.
