Broughton infant and junior schools are now federated, which means the schools have a single head teacher and a single governing body who oversee the running of both schools. This arrangement is working extremely well and has already provided many benefits for the children.
Since the federation, it has been decided that the junior school site will be significantly redeveloped with a new-build, so all the children can share the same site and facilities. As this will hopefully be completed during the autumn term 2014, it now seems sensible to consider the option of creating a single through-primary school.
The consultation period has now closed and further information can be found in the feedback report .
What happens next?
Following the recent consultation regarding the proposal to merge Broughton Infant School and Broughton Junior School, the council and the schools’ federated governing body have now considered the feedback. In view of the significant support for the amalgamation, approval has now been granted by the council to publish a formal public-notice confirming the details of the amalgamation proposal.
For further information see the full proposals for the infant and junior school, public notice and consultation document in the 'useful information' section of this page. Anybody wishing to make objections/comments about the proposal, must do so within six weeks of the date of publication (16 January 2014).
At the end of this process, the Council will make a final decision on the amalgamation proposal. Please revisit this website to check for updates.
