Statutory Consultation - Proposal to relocate and federate Warninglid Primary School

Closed 16 Mar 2020

Opened 3 Feb 2020

Results expected 30 Mar 2020

Feedback expected 13 Apr 2020

Overview

 

Ensuring that all children and young people secure the best start in life and are able to support the County in its quest for sustainability and prosperity is key to the future of West Sussex. Our School Effectiveness Strategy 2018-2022  aims to take account of this changing landscape and mitigate the extreme challenges of current educational funding faced both by schools and the County Council.

The County Council is responsible for strategically organising schools to ensure that they work in the most sustainable and effective way to support pupil outcomes.  For school organisation across the County, the aim is to establish a model of robust and sustainable education for all schools and key stages. For school improvement, the aim is to effectively challenge and support schools in order to secure long-term financial sustainability.

The national context of school organisation will especially affect small schools in West Sussex. School governing bodies are responsible for considering the impact and the actions that they can take. Early action is therefore needed to mitigate the risks of schools becoming vulnerable which leads to financial unsustainability and consequently a reduction in provision and standards.

This consultation is for pupils, parents/carers, staff,  pupils, governors, the local community and other interested parties.  Please read the 'Statutory Consultation -  Proposal to relocate and federate Warninglid Primary School' consultation document below, and/or attend the public meeting at Warninglid Primary School, Haywards Heath on Thursday 27 February 2020  from 18:30 - 20:00.
