Proposal to Amalgamate Stamford Park Infant and Junior Schools

The proposal is to amalgamate Stamford Park Infant and Junior Schools. It is proposed this will be achieved by closing Stamford Park Infant School and simultaneously extending the age range at Stamford Park Junior School from the current 7 to 11 years, to 3 to 11 years. 

The reason this method of amalgamation is being proposed is because from January 2021 there is a vacancy in the headship of Stamford Park Infant School. When a Headteacher position at either an infant or junior school becomes vacant, we consider if the site can be effectively managed as one school and if the buildings can be adapted to meet the needs of an amalgamated school at an acceptable cost, should this be required. If this is the case then we commence a period of informal consultation on a proposal to amalgamate. 

This proposal does not include an expansion project or new school building.
