Dear Parents & Carers,

 You will have received the invitation to hear about the proposed multi-academy trust in the local area.  In February next year, the Governing Body will make a decision whether or not to join the Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust, a multi-academy trust.  Mr Hale & Governors have been fully engaged with other schools within the local area to discuss & define to scope & principles of the trust.

As with so much in life, there is no “perfect” option, & the Governing Body will need to make a judgement that we believe will best safeguard the long term interests of the children of Chigwell Row.  It’s therefore really important that we gather as many views, thoughts, questions & concerns as we can to help us make an informed decision.  There is some information about the proposal on the school website (look under the ‘Information’ tab & find the folder called ‘Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust’).  Please do take the time to read this & provide your feedback to the school, ask questions you may have & share your thoughts with us.  If you would like further information please let Mr Hale know. Formal consultation will close on the 12th January, 2018. Thank you.
