Amalgamation Consultation Document

Dear Parents/Carers,
The Governing Bodies of St Thomas of Canterbury Church of England Infant School and St Thomas of Canterbury Church of England Junior School are consulting on a proposal to build on the strengths and good progress in place at the schools by the creation of a single primary school, under the unified leadership of one Headteacher and one Governing Body. The Governing Bodies, with the support of Essex County Council, are therefore proposing that the two schools amalgamate to form a primary school for children aged 4 to 11 with effect from 1 September 2023.

We would strongly encourage all parents/carers to read this document and share your comments/views by following the link to the electronic survey form.
The consultation closes on Thursday 23rd February 2023 at 5:00p.m.

Many thanks for your participation in this very important process.
