Amalgamation of Sunnymede Infant School and Sunnymede Junior School

Closed 27 Oct 2022

Opened 15 Sep 2022


Essex County Council (ECC), together with the governing bodies of Sunnymede Infant School and Sunnymede Junior School, is consulting on a proposal to create a single primary, 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 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 and nursery school under the leadership of Mrs Branch, to continue to drive up standards and performance.
