Amalgamation of Montgomery Infant School and Nursery and Montgomery Junior School

Closes 4 Jul 2024

Opened 29 May 2024

Overview

Essex County Council (ECC), together with the governing bodies of Montgomery Infant School and Nursey and Montgomery Junior School, is consulting on a proposal to create a single primary school, under the unified leadership of one headteacher and one governing body.  ECC, with the support of the governing bodies, is therefore proposing that the two schools amalgamate to form a primary school for children aged 4 to 11 with effect from 1 April 2025. 

Why your views matter

All parties agree that the principle of amalgamating the schools should be explored with the local community. Governors see significant advantages in combining the schools into a single primary school under the leadership of Mrs Wright, to continue to drive up standards and performance.

 

We invite you to engage with us, so that we may take full account of your views when the best way forward is considered.
