Update 11th January 2017
I have been in touch with the Local Authority who have advised me that we are now about to enter the first stage of the proposed expansion, which is a very important and comprehensive consultation with our community. The local Authority leads on this, but obviously I will need to pass on information to you, following their guidance. Many parents have already expressed their positive view, support and interest in this exciting opportunity.
All our staff members are fully on board and view this as progress and a development that will enable our school to move forward with the changing demands and requirements in education. It will strengthen and extend our potential in offering an even greater provision for young children in order to develop their learning opportunities. The Kent Local Education Authority – (LA) will be consulting on expanding the school. The proposed date for the expansion is from September 2018.
A consultation document will be sent out by Friday 27th January 2017.
There will be a public meeting in the school hall on the 6th February at 5:15pm.
You are all invited to come and listen to the proposal from the officer representing the local authority and ask questions.
