Arbour Vale School – Change to Funding Agreement Consultation
Arbour Vale School (AVS) is undertaking a consultation to request a change to the funding agreement arrangements that it holds with the Department for Education (DfE).
Over the last few years, AVS has met the demand of additional children across existing year groups. As a result of this incremental increase, AVS now offers places to an additional 31 children above its current funding agreement of 304 places. As this admission number is over 20 places higher than our current funding agreement, we need to formally apply to the DfE to increase the planned number of places in the funding agreement.
Our funding agreement also currently includes a residential provision which is no longer offered and we need to formally apply to have this removed as well.
As part of the application process to change our funding agreement, the school needs to consult with the community and present the findings of the consultation to the DfE.
Therefore, Arbour Vale School will be holding a consultation on the proposal to make permanent the incremental increase within the school’s funding agreement by amending the planned places from 304 to 335 and to remove the residential provision from the funding agreement.
The consultation on the proposal will run from:
Wednesday 21st September to Wednesday 19th October 2022.
In order to answer any questions about the proposal and there will be Public Meetings at the school on Wednesday 5th October at the following times:
10am to 11am
1.15pm to 2.15pm
Do come and ask any questions at these drop in sessions.
