Proposal for school consultation

7 April 2022

Dear Parents,

Proposal for School Consultation

On 21 March 2022 the Board of Governors resolved to consult staff, parents, pupils on the following proposal:

To unite the school community onto one site from September 2022 for a trial period of at least one year

We would like to invite you to join us for a consultation event on Wednesday 27 April in the school hall at our Alderton base.  The event will run from 7-9pm.  There will be a short presentation followed by an opportunity to discuss the above proposal. 

The consultation document for this proposal is available on our website.  Please click here to view the document.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts at the consultation event on 27 April.  We hope to hear from as many members of our school community as possible, so are also welcoming comments and feedback via our online consultation feedback form (which can be accessed by the link at the end of this letter) or you may prefer to submit a paper feedback form.  You will find one at the back of the attached consultation document.  If we can assist you in providing a printed copy of the consultation document and/or the feedback form, please let the office know.

Copies of this letter, the consultation and feedback form plus a link to the online consultation feedback form are also available on the school’s website.

When we shared our Ofsted inspection report with you in February, we were pleased it highlighted so many key strengths of our school and our ambitions for every pupil the school serves, both now and in the future. 

Our school community continues to work together to create a school whose accomplishments are measured not just by inspection reports or SATs scores, but by the experiences and overall education our children enjoy during their primary school years at Oak Hill.  This proposal is part of that ambition and we are excited to be able to explore this with you and the children over the coming weeks.

Our vision remains clear, it is to create an exceptional school environment where success means every child leaves us confidently by the end of year 6 prepared to experience life in all its fullness in the world beyond our small rural school.  To achieve that vision, we want to ensure we work together successfully as a whole community on important issues such as this proposal. 

We hope you have a good Easter holiday and thank you sincerely for all of the kind words and support you have shared with us and all of the staff over this last term. 

Yours on behalf of the Board of Governors,
