The Sapientia Education Trust is currently undertaking a consultation regarding a change to the Early Years provision at Rockland St. Mary Primary School.


Consultation overview

The current providers of Early Years provision at Rockland St. Mary Primary School, Sunbeams Pre-school, have notified us that they will no longer be able to provide that service from the end of the Summer term, 2021.

In response to this, the Sapientia Education Trust is proposing to take over the running of the Early Years provision at the school from September 2021.

This proposal will ensure that the Early Years provision continues on site in its current purpose-built location, providing continued access to this valuable educational resource.

As part of this proposed change, we are required to undertake a consultation with all stakeholders.


Consultation timeline

The consultation with last for four weeks from the start of the summer academic term.

Upon completion of the consultation, the responses will be compiled and published on the school website within three weeks.
