Swaffham Church of England VC Infant School - statutory notice for change of age range

Closes 27 Mar 2019

Opened 27 Feb 2019


Statutory proposal to change the age range of Swaffham Church of England Voluntary Controlled Infant School for pupils aged 2 - 11 years, from 1 September 2020.

From 1 September 2020, the Governing Body, Swaffham CofE VC Infant School proposes to make a prescribed alteration to change the age range from 3 - 7 years, to 2 - 11 years.  The Infant School will become a primary school and be called Heartwood CofE Primary School.

Swaffham CofE VC Infant School currently has 60 children (2 classes of 30 children) in each year group.  It is proposed that Heartwood CofE Primary School will gradually become a primary schoool, from 1 September 2020, with 30 children in each year group.

The intake year will be Reception.  However during the transition to primary school, children in Year 3 will have the opportunity to apply to remain at the Heartwood CofE Primary School until Year 6, or transfer to Swaffham CofE Junior Academy.

This proposal is linked to a similar proposal for Swaffham CofE Junior Academy to become a primary school at the same time.

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, by email to schoolreview@norfolk.gov.uk or responding to this online survey.
