Issue details

The governing board are proposing that from 1 April 2021 the school's age range is changed from 3-11 to 4-11 and that the nursery provision is then run by a joint governor and staff committee.  Under Department for Education (DfE) section 27 regulations schools are required to hold a public consultation if they wish to run their nursery provision under these regulations. The school is therefore consulting its parents, staff, nearby schools, child minders and the local community on the proposed change. The governing board will review the outcome of the consultation and if there is support for the proposal they will then publish a statutory notice. This will enable people to comment on, support or object to the proposal. The notice period runs for 4 weeks and after the period expires the LA has 8 weeks to decide on whether to agree to the proposal.
