A Joint Statement from the Head Teachers and Chairs of Governors from the Infant
and Junior Schools at Hyde Park 23rd October 2014
Following discussions, the Heads and Chairs of both schools are pleased to recommend to you, subject to Governor ratification, the proposed Federation of the
schools to be achieved hopefully before the end of the autumn term.
This will involve the uniqueness of both schools being retained, a separate head teacher for both schools and minimal changes other
than the appointment of a permanent head teacher for the juniors. There will be new opportunities for the schools to work together and
importantly, there will be a single governing body allowing for streamlined decision-making in all areas.
There will be a paper ‘consultation’ on this one option and open meetings to respond to questions or concerns. We are pleased be reassure you that the
schools are already planning to work much more closely together and look forward to building on our collective strengths.
Mr D Maddison (Interim Head Teacher) and Mrs Zoe Masters (Chair of Governors)
Mrs E A Hill (Head Teacher) and Mrs Smith (Chair of Governors)
