Welcome to the autumn term 2020!

Whitemoor Pre-school Consultation 2020

Consultation on the proposed status change for Whitemoor Academy and Whitemoor Pre-school
 
As a local school or early years provider, we would like to inform and consult with you of the proposed plans for Whitemoor Academy and Whitemoor Pre-school.
 
The two organisations have always worked closely together but we have now submitted an application to the Department for Education for Whitemoor Pre-school to close as a committee run single entity and to transfer under the management of Whitemoor Academy and the Aspire Academy Trust from 1st September 2020.
 
This move will result in a change of funded ages at Whitemoor Academy from 4-11 years at current to 2-11 years.
 
We hope this move:
  • Sustains a strong working relationship between the preschool and the academy
  • Provides greater educational opportunities for our children with an enhanced transition between the preschool and the academy
  • Provides greater development and retention opportunities for our staff
  • Provides stability and confidence to the parents and community for maintaining a strong pre-school in the village of Whitemoor
 
In light of the current situation we all now face with the Coronavirus, we are not able to hold a stakeholder meeting to discuss the process but we still welcome any feedback that you have as this is extremely important to us.
 
I, therefore, ask that if you have any feedback, please email secretary@whitemoor.org.uk by Friday 24th April and we will be happy to respond accordingly.
