Time to have your say
Woodside Primary School held a meeting on Monday 11th February 2019 to start off a consultation that is due to last only 5 more weeks. Go to http://www.woodside.herts.schouk/academy-consultation/ for detailed information.
whilst Woodside School have stated as ‘passionate about ensuring that each and every child develops with self-confidence, developing a growth mind set and achieving their full potential in every aspect of school life’ several of our GOCA members have expressed their concerns. Whilst ‘Learning at Woodside is engaging and follow a thematic curriculum, linking areas of learning together to allow our children to have a depth of learning’ the question has to be asked ‘why is there now need to become part of a Multi-Academic Trust?’
At the end of the consultation period, all information submitted well be put to the vote whether to become an academy. This is the time to make sure you have participated and put forward your comments to the Chair of Governors, via the School office.
As the GOCA Committee has been made aware of some concerns, this is to be discussed at the next Committee meeting. We would be more than happy to receive your thoughts and comments.
