Closes 14 Dec 2018

Opened 5 Nov 2018

Overview

.

Draft Proposal to Discontinue Wilkes Green Infant School and make a prescribed change to Wilkes Green Junior School.

At the request of Chair of Governors of Wilkes Green Junior School and the Chair of the Interim Executive Board of Wilkes Green Infant School, Birmingham City Council, as the Local Authority for Birmingham, is consulting on a proposal to amalgamate Wilkes Green Infant and Wilkes Green Junior School to create one all through primary school with effect from 1st January 2019.

In order to amalgamate the schools it is necessary to

  • Discontinue Wilkes Green Infant  School
  • Alter the lower age limit of Wilkes Green Junior School from 7 years to 4 years
  • Enlargement of the premises by expansion of Wilkes Green Junior School ( to accommodate pupils of infant school age.)

This will result in the amalgamation of both schools to form an all through primary school.

Wilkes Green Junior School will be proposing to change its name to reflect the change in the age range and amalgamation.

All pupils from the infant school would have the right to transfer to the primary school unless they wanted to seek other arrangements.

Why We Are Consulting

 There is a statutory process that we must follow to make these sorts of changes to schools. At the moment we are entering the six week informal consultation stage during which we want to hear your views on the proposal.

We are keen to receive your views on this proposal. Full details of the proposal and how to make comment are provided in the draft proposal document attached to this webpage.
