Overview

Havering Council and the Diocese of Brentwood is consulting on a proposal to amalgamate St Ursula’s Catholic Infant School and St Ursula’s Catholic Junior School. This will result in a single primary school being established.

The consultation starts on Monday 20 January 2020 and will close on Monday 17 February 2020.

Why We Are Consulting

The local authority wants to ensure that any proposed changes are made in accordance as set out in the requirements and processes for amalgamating and making changes to maintained schools. And where there is a strong case for doing so, decisions can be implemented quickly and effectively without any negative impact on other schools in the area .

Therefore, If you have an interest in the future of any or both schools, we would like you to take part in this consultation.
