Overview

Birmingham City Council, as the Local Authority for Birmingham, in full collaboration with the joint Governing Board of Bournville Infant and Bournville Junior Schools is consulting on a proposal to amalgamate Bournville Infant School and Bournville Junior School to create one all through primary school with effect from 29th April 2019 ( the first day of the summer term.)

In order to amalgamate the schools it is necessary to

  • Discontinue Bournville Infant School
  • Expand and alter the lower age limit of Bournville Junior School (to accommodate the infant pupils.)

Bournville Junior School will be proposing to change its name to Bournville Village Primary School to reflect the change to 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 are processes that we must follow in order to make these changes to schools.

We carried out an informal consultation on the proposal to amalgamate the two schools, this ran  from 15th January 2018 to 2nd March 2018.

During this consultation we received 38 responses, 22 of which were in writing. Of the 38 responses, 32 were in favour of the proposed amalgamation and 6 did not state whether they were in favour or against the proposal.

Both the Local Authority and the Governing Board of the Schools have considered the responses and have decided to move to the next stage of the process to amalgamate the school, this stage is known as the statutory consultation or representation period.

This statutory (representation) period will run for four weeks. We are keen to receive your views on the final proposal and  all views received will be forwarded to the decision makers for consideration.

Full details of the final  proposal and how to make comment are provided in the  final proposal document attached to this webpage.

 

 

 

 

What Happens Next

At the end of the four week representation period we will collate all responses received and forward these along with a report on the proposal to the decision makers.

The latest date by which a decision is required on the  proposal is 11th September 2018.

When decision has been made we will publish the outcome on the "We asked, you said, we did" section of this website.
