We had a good open session on Monday talking to parents about the proposed new partnership with North Elmham and answering all questions brought to the governors. Later in the day a similar meeting was held at North Elmham. Governors from Stibbard and North Elmham, together with staff, answered questions relating to how partnership will affect the children day to day, how much the management team will still be present at Stibbard, communication, what the differences are between partnership and federation and how the schools are looking to work together for school improvement.
I can report that the feeling is positive, and that all parents said that they could understand that this move is made with the future sustainability of both schools in mind. If any parents have any other questions about the proposed partnership, please do not hesitate to pop into school and speak to any of Mrs Batcock, Miss Tobin or Mr Isherwood.
