Why Are We Amalgamating?

The governors have voted unanimously to proceed with potential amalgamation for a number of reasons.  

These include:

  • Children will receive a seamless transition of education from nursery through to Year 6, eliminating the ‘drop back’ in their learning that can occur when they change schools
  • The emotional, physical and educational benefits in supporting and working with children without them having to change schools
  • Schemes of learning will be consistent throughout the school, eliminating barriers to children’s’ education
  • Children of all years will be able to mix and care for one another
  • There is evidence to show that standards, in other schools that have amalgamated, have continued to rise
