Future pattern of education in the Hyde Park area – Federation proposal
You may have already heard about plans to make changes at Hyde Park Infant and Junior schools.
Over the last few months several meetings have been held between the local authority and
representatives of the two schools to discuss options for education provision in Hyde Park.
Hyde Park Infant School staff are pleased to offer a second viewing and information session for parents on Wednesday 26th November at 4pm.
Please be advised that this is not a session conducive for children. Once the Local Authority allocate your child a place we have a warm
and friendly induction programme for your child which includes a visit to your home by the teacher and this is the first experience that
we want for your child.
The two governing bodies have now asked the local authority to undertake a consultation with the
wider schools’ communities on their behalf. The proposal is that:
The two schools form a hard federation with two head teachers and one governing body (see
attachments 1 and 2 for more information) with effect from 1 April 2015.
The two schools share a site but are currently run by two separate governing bodies and two head
teachers. If they were to federate, there would be the same number of classes, but the new school
would be run by a single governing body and two head teachers.
