Potterne Consultation Update
The statutory notice has now been approved by the legal team at Wiltshire Council. A full copy of the proposal to close the Potterne site will be published on our website on Thursday 24th January 2019. Hard copies will be available from the office. Another period of consultation will take place for approximately four weeks. Responses to the proposal should be sent to the Chair of Governors, Steve Morse by Thursday 28th February 2019. We encourage our families to respond to the proposal.
Following the consultation, responses will be considered by Wiltshire Council before they make the final decision to close the Potterne site.
The proposed implementation date to close the Potterne site has now been moved to 31st August 2019. This is to ensure the statutory time scale is met. All children would then be educated at the Worton site from 1st September 2019, allowing a smooth transition to one site at the start of the new academic year.
Update - School Consultation to move to Worton site
Further to the letter sent to parents in July, we want to update you on the current Consultation process to move the whole school to the Worton site. The Governing Body has proposed that it is in the school’s best interest to move the whole school to Worton. The Consultation process, run jointly with Wiltshire Council, is to outline the reasons why this move has been proposed and will allow our school and village communities to express any views.
The Consultation documents will be sent out next week to school families and will also be available for the general public. Additionally a meeting will be held for parents and community members to hear more about the proposal, gain a clear understanding of the Consultation process and ask any questions. We will advise on the date and location of this meeting once it has been agreed.We appreciate your understanding.
