Fakenham - statutory public notice

Closed 31 Jan 2019

Opened 3 Jan 2019

Overview

Statutory proposal to change the age range of Fakenham Infant and Nursery School, Fakenham for pupils aged 2 - 7 from 1st March 2019

In March 2018, the Governors agreed to take on the responsibility for 2 year old provision via Section 27 of the Community Powers Regulations.  This provision started on 19 October 2018.  The school and playgroup have seen the responsibility for 2 year old provision transferring to the school as a positive move to protect the existing places already offered on site, but also to strengthen the early education offer for parents.

This proposal to change the age range formalises the governance arrangements for the 2 year provision, by legally changing the age range of Fakenham Infant and Nursery School.

The schools determined arrangements for school entry in September 2019 will remain unchanged and there is no change to the fact that a nursery place does not in any way guarantee a place at the school, as is documented on the admissions policy on the school's website.

Comments can be made during the four week statutory notice period by contacting the School Organisation Team, (Bay 34), Floor 8, FREEPOST IH 2076, County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich NR1 2DH or email school.review@norfolk.gov.uk or by responding to this online survey.
