Proposal to open a new school by amalgamating Christ Church C of E Infant School and Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries

Closes 26 Feb 2020

Opened 22 Jan 2020

Overview

Surrey County Council, in partnership with the Diocese of Guildford and the Governing Bodies of Christ Church C of E Infant School and Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries, is proposing to open a new school by amalgamating the two schools into a single institution from September 2020. It is proposed that the new school would be a voluntary aided Church of England school and would be situated on the existing site of Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries.

 Following the legal framework to amalgamate the two schools, we are proposing the technical closure of both of the existing schools in order for a new voluntary aided school with religious character to be opened. 
 

Therefore in order to amalgamate Christ Church C of E Infant School and Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries:

  1. Surrey County Council and the governing body of Christ Church C of E Infant School are proposing the closure of Christ Church C of E Infant School
  2. Surrey County Council and the governing body of Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries are proposing the closure of Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries
  3. The Diocese of Guildford is proposing the opening of a new voluntary aided school with Church of England character under section 11 of the Education and Inspection Act 2006 on the site of Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries.

The result would be a new Voluntary Aided Infant School opening on 1 September 2020, accommodating pupils from Year R to Year 2. The school would have a PAN of 60 in Year R and continue the nursery provision currently provided by Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries.

Surrey County Council, the Diocese of Guildford and the Governing Bodies of Christ Church Infant School and Englefield Green Infant School would like to know what the community thinks about this proposal. The consultation will open on Wednesday 22 January 2020.

A public meeting is planned at Englefield Green Infant School and Nurseries on Thursday 30 January at 6pm

A public meeting is planned at Christ's Church CofE Infant School on Tuesday 11 February at 2pm

All are welcome to attend.
