Increase the age range of Bishop Tufnell Infant School from age 4 -7 (YR – Y2) to become an age 4 -11 (YR – Y6) all through primary school and closure of Bishop Tufnell Junior School with effect from September 2018.

Closed 15 May 2018

Opened 20 Mar 2018

Overview

Introduction

Following the federation of the two schools in September 2017 the Governors of the Bishop Tufnell Schools Federation have held discussions with advisors from the Diocese of Chichester and the Local Education Authority to look at how best to secure the long term future of both schools.

Need for change

One of the newly federated Governing Body’s priorities, (following recommendations from Ofsted), was to review the effectiveness of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT). After discussions within the Governing Body and with advice from advisers at both the Diocese of Chichester  and West Sussex County Council (WSCC) the announcement by our current Executive Head to retire, the Governing Body has decided that a single head teacher across both schools would provide a clearer, more effective model of leadership for our schools.

The proposal

We propose to close Bishop Tufnell Junior School with effect from 31 August 2018 and increase the age range of Bishop Tufnell Infant School from age  4 -7 (YR – Y2) to become an age 4 -11 (YR – Y6) all through primary school from 1 September 2018. The all-through primary school would continue on both existing sites.

 

Why We Are Consulting

To raise awareness and seek feedback from the community on proposals to close Bishop Tufnell Junior School with effect from 31 August 2018 and increase the age range of Bishop Tufnell Infant School from age  4 -7 (YR – Y2) to become an age 4 -11 (YR – Y6) all through primary school from 1 September 2018. The all-through primary school would continue on both existing sites.
