Extending the Federation

10th September 2018


Dear Parent/Carer,


I would like to firstly welcome you all back to the new academic year.


As you are aware, schools and education are never static, and things change. During the last half term of the 17/18 academic year the school was asked to consider an extension to the current Federation to include New Holland C of E and Methodist Primary School. After much deliberation, the Governing Board is now in a position to ask for your opinion on this further Federation.


The consultation process will start today, 10th September and will end on Friday 2nd November. I have no doubt that you will have numerous questions, so we have produced a Consultation document that is available for download from our Federation’s websites ( and on request from the school office.


We also plan to offer you the opportunity to speak to Miss Breslin and members of the Governing Board. Dates for these can be found on the consultation document.


The final page of this document is a questionnaire. Please complete this questionnaire online (following the links on the document) or on paper and return them by 2nd November.


If the decision is made to proceed with the Federation, New Holland will join the Federation from 1st January 2019.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions after you have read the Parental Consultation Document.
