This consultation is now closed. Thank you very much for everybody who responded.
After 105 consultees responded to the consultation to extend the age range at Kinson Primary School, all of whom agreed with the proposal, the Directors have decided to submit a Business Case to the Department of Education to extend the age range at Kinson Primary School to 3 - 11 to incorporate a Pre-School.
Kinson Primary School would like to provide pre-school education at the school to serve the Kinson community. This would allow us to offer a high quality, teacher-led pre-school provision to children that cannot access a pre-School education in this area. It is intended that it would be fully funded through the early education entitlement for 3-4 year olds, which provides up to 15 hours of free early education per week. In order to establish the pre-school it is necessary for the school to consult on a formal proposal to change the age range for which the school can cater from 4-11 to 3-11 years.
Please find below the consultation documents, and links to an online questionnaire. I would like to encourage everyone to please read these and respond, to make sure your voice is heard. There is also a link to a paper copy of this form, copies of which are available from the school office.
All responses need to be received by midnight on Wednesday 1st March 2017 when the consultation closes. The responses will then be recorded and summarised in a consultation report. This report will be published on the school’s website and will be taken into account by the Board of Directors when they consider the way forward.
With many thanks for your continued support,
Victoria Bryan, Headteacher
*NOTE* - Questions and Answers have been updated to include the additional 15 hours free Early Years Provision that children of some working parents will be entitled to from September 2017
