To further support the positive journey of our schools, we are proposing to merge them into a single primary school from the 2021/22 academic year. It is incredibly important to us that we hear the views of everyone in our community with regards to the plans to create one primary academy, and so the formal consultation period for this will run from Tuesday 12 January until midday Friday 26 March 2021.
