The Provisional Opening Date (POD) of the school is yet to be confirmed by the Department for Education (DfE), although we had hoped that we would have agreement for this to be September 2021.   

This is now unlikely, as following our meeting with the DfE in August, there are many factors which have to be considered before this date can be agreed by the DfE.   We will review the progress of the site and the basic need data with the DfE at regular intervals, between now and September 2022, in order that we can inform all stakeholders once we finally get the DfE’s agreement of the POD. 

We understand that parents want clarity around the opening date, but unfortunately, with all new Free Schools, there are many variables that can affect the opening date, such as issues around the site, adverse weather conditions, planning, legal documentation, Covid19, Government Policy etc. 

It is still our aim to open a 26 place Nursery (potentially September 2021) and a class of 30 Reception aged children when we open.   We will of course endeavour to keep all stakeholders informed of strategic developments as soon as possible.  I hope to be able to notify you shortly with regards to the planning consultation for the school building, this is in the final stages of development.

Please do not hesitate to contact us through the 'Contact' page on this website if you have any questions.
