Issue details

The school's governing board and LA are consulting their local community, parents/carers and staff on a proposal that from September 2021 the school changes its age range and becomes a 1/2 form entry all-through primary school. It presently takes children up to the end of KSI. If agreed the proposal would mean that children stay at the school until the end of KSII before moving into secondary education. The governing board held a public consultation in 2019 when they received overwhelming public support for the proposal. In line with the DfE's statutory guidance a statutory notice was published on 18 September, launching a 4 week representation period for people to support, comment on or object to the proposal. Planning permission and funding for the project have been secured. If the proposal is agreed the necessary building work would be finished by the 2021 Autumn Term.
