The Governing Body of Easthampstead Park Community School have been carefully considering the best future strategy for the school so that we can build on our achievement of being an outstanding learning community. We want to continue the improvement in the schools’ and pupils’ performance, to protect the unique ethos, values and character of our schools and to keep the freedom to run our school in ways best for our community of pupils, staff, parents and carer.
We are letting you know that we have applied to the Regional Schools Commissioner seeking agreement for a proposal for Easthampstead Park Community School, to convert to an academy within the Kings Group Academies trust. We hope to be granted an academy order which means that the RSC is content for us to proceed with plans to convert.
The Governing Body is interested in understanding your views on this as we look to shape the future of our school. Our next step is seeking the views of staff, parents, and the communities around the school. Our school is a community school and we are committed to working with parents and carers and the wider community. We think it is important that everyone can ask questions, explore the proposal in more detail with us, and be involved in the consultation.
Please do take the time to read the info on this page https://www.epschool.org/parents/academy-consultation/ and respond to the consultation.
The full letter sent to Parents and Carers is also available on the website here https://www.epschool.org/…/Parent-Letter-Pre-Academy…
The formal consultation period opens today 19 April 2022 and will remain open until 3 May 2022.
Please use this form online at: https://forms.gle/QErK2QdKDU6fqDzf7 to ask any questions not already included in the FAQ’s section on the website. We will update the website with the questions from this form regularly during the consultation process. This form also allows you to tell us whether you support the proposal.
Your feedback is important to us. Thank you for your understanding.
