On Monday 4th July, Kevan raised his concerns about the lack of consultation with parents over the future of South Stanley infant and junior schools during Education Questions.
Kevan asked the schools minister, Nick Gibb:
"Durham county council is part-way through the legal process of merging South Stanley infant and junior schools to form a primary school, but on Friday the Department issued a notice that the infant school will now be part of Greenlands junior school as a new academy, completely ignoring any consultation with local parents. How does that fit with what the Minister has said about the involvement of parents in these decisions?"
The Minister subsequently agreed to meet with Kevan to further discuss the issue.
On 2 July, Kevan called in at the Great Lumley Festival, where he met Shirley Smith from If U Care Share.
