A New Letter from Andrew Bethell

18 March 2019 

Dear Parent/Carer,

Following my letter to you last week about the consultation over the future of the school, I have been asked to arrange a meeting for any concerned parents to discuss the matter with myself.

So, I propose to be available at the school on TUESDAY 27th March from 3.45pm. This will be an informal opportunity for parents to ask questions and express their views. It will also be a chance for me to assist those parents who wish to make a formal response to the consultation. If there is a request I can make arrangements for a  translator to be there. Please notify the office if you may need this service.

Haringey Council will be holding a public meeting in the near future and once we have details of that I will make sure that you are fully informed.

It is important to understand the timescale for any future developments. The current informal consultation has four weeks to run. On the basis of the response, the Council will then decide whether to move to a formal consultation. This is most likely to happen in the autumn term and lasts another six weeks. The final decision will then be taken and the earliest it could be put into practice would be January 2020.  

As you see, nothing that directly affects your children will happen for at least nine months. In that time I can assure you that we will be doing everything to maintain a stable and positive education for all out children. As I hope you can see, there have been a lot of improvements in every aspect of the school and these will continue for as long as required.

I hope to meet you at the meeting on Tuesday 27th.

With best wishes,

Andrew Bethell

Interim Chair of Governors
