Send and St Bede's Amalgamation

Closed 29 Jan 2016

Opened 8 Dec 2015


The governors of the Federation of Send Church of England Schools believe that the best way to provide outstanding education is by merging the two existing schools - Send CofE First School and St Bede's CofE Junior School - to become one single primary school catering for all children from ages 4 to 11.

The nursery is unaffected by this proposal.

The Governing Body would like to seek your views on merging the two schools to become Send Church of England Primary School - a single, full primary school - with effect from 1 September 2016.  The schools would retain their voluntary aided (VA) status and maintain close links with the Diocese of Guildford.

A public meeting is planned in the school hall at Send CofE First School on Thursday 7 January from 4-5pm and all are welcome to attend.
