Amalgamation of St Thomas of Canterbury Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Infant School and St Thomas of Canterbury Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Junior School

Closed 23 Feb 2023

Opened 26 Jan 2023


The governing bodies of St Thomas of Canterbury CofE (VA) Infant School and St Thomas of Canterbury CofE (VA)Junior School, together with Essex County Council (ECC), are consulting on a proposal to create a single primary, under the unified leadership of one headteacher and one governing body.  The governing bodies, with the support of ECC, are therefore proposing that the two schools amalgamate to form a primary school for children aged 4 to 11 with effect from September 2023.

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 under the leadership of Mr Moran, to continue to drive up standards and performance.
