We the undersigned petition Hounslow Council to Reject the proposal to amalgamate the Sparrow Farm Schools. More details

More details from petition creator

The proposed amalgamation would have a detrimental effect on the education and development of the children in our care. An amalgamation would mean: A large, impersonal institution that would threaten the current warm relationships with the children, families and our community. More time and attention would be spent by Staff and Governors on extensive bureaucracy involved in an amalgamation rather than on the children's education. There is NO EVIDENCE to show an amalgamation would improve the learning and development of the children. Evidence actually suggests that learning and development would suffer. Currently, each school focuses on a specific Key Stage of the educational journey. This will not change in an amalgamated school, therefore there is no benefit to the children to change. There is increased likelihood for high staff turnover and the children will lose their sense of continuity and belonging. It is impossible to create unity without combined physical space such as a new Main Hall, new staff room, new central play area. The removal of funding prevents any possibility of creating these spaces so it would be impossible to engender a sense of one-school or combined values. Only one Head across two sites is detrimental to the effectiveness of any leadership. The Governors are opposed to the amalgamation. The Governors recognise the daunting challenge of keeping each individual child in focus in a school of nearly 650 pupils and staffing would be stretched beyond capacity due to the loss of funding. Join us in objecting to this proposal and help us Save our School. The Governing Body, Sparrow Farm Infant & Nursery School
