Consultation on the proposal to relocate Stalham Infant & Pre-school to the Stalham Academy site
Boudica Schools Trust (BST) has run Stalham Infant & Pre-school since September 2018 and across that time we have gained detailed knowledge and understanding of the challenges of the site. Having carefully considered the needs of children, parents and staff both now and in the future, we are proposing that the school should be relocated to the Stalham Academy site from September 2020.
The key considerations behind our proposal are that the move will provide:
1) More effective transitions when children move from Infant to Junior school
2) A more modern learning environment with access to better outdoor spaces
3) Safer pick-up and drop-off of children
4) Greater convenience for those parents who have children at both schools
5) Improved support and development opportunities for staff
6) A consistent approach to teaching and learning across both schools
7) Increased sharing of good practice and approaches across both schools
On big decisions like this, BST cannot simply implement our proposals. Rather, there is a formal process to go through which culminates in the submission of a detailed business case to the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC). The final decision is then in the hands of the Headteacher Board.
However, the first stage of the process involves consultation with the local community and Norfolk County Council and that is why we are contacting you now.
