Update - January 2019

Following  the outcomes of the public consultation the Governing Bodies at Willesborough Infant School and Willesborough Junior School have resolved to become a federation from January 15 2019.


Original Text

This consultation has now closed.

Willesborough Infant and Junior schools are two successful schools sharing the same site. Over the last year, the schools have been working effectively together. The two schools are formally linked via the admissions policy which gives children at the Infant school automatic right of entry to the Junior school upon application.

The Governing Bodies of both schools have agreed to consult with staff, parents, guardians and other interested parties on a proposal to form a working partnership and become a federation.  The governing bodies see this as an opportunity to formalise the way the schools are working together and to secure good and effective leadership across both schools to maintain and improve standards. A federation is an arrangement that formalises the way that two schools will work together.

 A copy of the proposal and the Equalities Impact Assessment can be found in the document section below.
