To: All parent and carers of children attending Savile Town CE (C) Infant and Nursery School and Thornhill Lees CE (VC) Infant and Nursery School.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are writing to you on behalf of the Governing Bodies of Savile Town Infant and Nursery School and Thornhill Lees Infant and Nursery School to share information regarding potential future arrangements which will affect both schools.
Following separate governing body meetings last term the two governing bodies have agreed to proceed to formal consultation on the proposal that the two schools should move to a federation from Monday 1st October 2018.
Formal consultation is a statutory process whereby all interested parties, including staff, must be given a copy of the proposals and will be allowed six weeks to respond in writing regarding the proposal. All comments must then be considered by the two governing bodies after which they must decide whether the federation will proceed.
Therefore, we have great pleasure in enclosing copies of the formal process in this pack along with information on how you respond. The consultation period ends on Friday 20th July at 9am. You will be informed by letter of the outcome at the end of the school day. Inside your pack you will see:
Page 3: Statutory Proposal
Page 5: Stakeholder's Information
Page 9: Consultation Response Form
A Link is provided at the bottom of the page to download the full proposal.
You will also read about planned opportunities to speak directly with governors and LA (Local Authority) representatives who are involved in this consultation.
Should you require any further support regarding the information contained in this pack please do not hesitate to contact either school office who will be able to offer assistance:
We urge you to respond in order to ensure we make a fully informed decision and take the right course of action for the children, the schools and our community.
