Consultation regarding our schools joining an Academy group
We would like to share our ideas on improved support for Pine Ridge and Lorraine Schools and Children’s Centre, and to seek your involvement in this decision.
After extensive discussions, we have concluded that joining an academy group which is based on a model of mutual support between local schools is in the best interests of our children and staff. Discussions have led us to conclude that joining GLF Schools would provide the best immediate and future support for our schools and children’s centre. This will also help strengthen our links with Cordwalles, who are already part of the GLF group of schools. This proposal is recommended by the Governors and by the Leadership Team. We are therefore launching a period of consultation with staff and with parents/carers to ensure that we have considered all views before reaching a final conclusion.
We would welcome your involvement in this process and your feedback on the benefits of the proposed arrangement and will endeavour to address any questions or concerns which you may have. We are seeking views on the proposal to join GLF Schools through an online survey questionnaire which can be found by clicking the link below. The closing date for replies is 21st June. We encourage you to learn more about GLF Schools from their website http://www.glfschools.org before letting us have your views.

A meeting for parents and carers will be held on 7th June at 2pm at Pine Ridge and at 6pm at Lorraine. Please attend whichever meeting is most convenient for you. At each meeting there will be a short presentation during which we will recap the proposal, followed by an opportunity to ask questions to representatives of the school, the Governing Body and GLF.
The results of the survey will be considered by the Governing Body at a meeting where we will discuss the feedback received and will reach a final conclusion.
For more detailed information please see the attached letter.
We look forward to your involvement in this important decision.
