Formal Consultation

We would like to invite you to take part in a formal consultation on the proposed merger of         Cippenham Infant and Cippenham Primary Schools

The Gold Rose MAT is a charitable education trust responsible for the two schools located in Dennis Way and Elmshott Lane in Cippenham, Slough.                    Cippenham Infant School has a roll of 270 pupils from 5 to 7 years (reception to    year 2). Cippenham Primary School has a roll of 840 pupils from 5 to 11 years (reception to year 6).

Our aim

Through this consultation we want to work with you to ensure the schools are able to continue providing the best education possible. 

We aspire to excellence and aim to ensure every pupil is able to demonstrate achievements which are personally exceptional. This aspiration will continue to guide us in our decision making. 

The Proposal

Trustees of The Gold Rose MAT are proposing to merge Cippenham Infant School and Cippenham Primary School into one primary school, to be called           Cippenham Academy.

The newly merged school will have the same number of pupils on roll, organised into five forms of entry from reception to year 6. There will be one formal admission point in reception year, aged 5, which means that parents with children at the infant school will no longer be required to apply for a place at the primary school in year 3. 

We hope you will take the time to share your views with us. Anyone associated with the schools can take part, we want to know what you think about our proposed plans.
