Co-op consultation

21st September 2018
Dear Parents/Carers,
 
For many years, schools in the Godalming area have enjoyed increasingly positive and fruitful working relationships. We have shared expertise, training opportunities, events for children and many other opportunities to support learning in our community. We want this to continue in the face of many changes in education.
 
For this reason, we have been looking at formalising a new way of working as  a Cooperative Trust. This won’t change the individual nature of each school or its ethos but it will bind us together more closely to help us to continue to support one another and further develop learning and education for our communities.
 
For four of our community schools (Milford School, Busbridge Infants School, Godalming Junior School and Moss Lane School) this will involve a change of status from community to foundation school.
 
The documents below explain this in more detail and invite you to public meetings at either of the four community schools.
 
We hope that you will support us in what is an exciting opportunity for our community.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Mr Andrew Stear
