Amalgamation of St George's Infant School and Nursery and St George's New Town Junior School

Closed 9 Jul 2020

Opened 11 Jun 2020

Overview

Essex County Council (ECC), together with the governing bodies of St George’s Infant School and Nursery and St George’s New Town Junior School, is consulting on a proposal to create a single primary and nursery 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 and nursery school for children aged 3 to 11 with effect from January 2021. 

Why we are consulting

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 and nursery school under the leadership of Mr Messer, to continue to drive up standards and performance.
