We are opening a period of consultation regarding a proposed change of age range we are looking to make from September at Rook’s Nest Academy. We are currently registered for children from 3 to 11 years but we would like to be able to offer education to 2-year-olds. The Rook’s Nest Pre-School, which is not currently part of the Academy, have approached the Academy to ask for support in continuing to be able to provide childcare facilities. Rook’s Nest Academy are proposing that the staff and children, who currently attend pre-school move over to the Academy site and under their governing body from September. This will allow for improved staff ratios, larger facilities and access to qualified teacher support. The DfE are currently considering this change and the Local Authority are supportive of the move. Any parents wishing to raise concerns or object to the proposal must do so formally by writing to the Academy or sending an email to the Headteachers email address.
The closing date for the consultation will be Friday 22nd July
