Proposal for Cold Harbour Church of England School to convert to an academy and join the Oxford Diocesan Bucks Schools Trust

The Governing Body of Cold Harbour CofE School is proposing to change the status of the school from a Local Authority Maintained School to an Academy, and for the school to join the Oxford Diocesan Bucks Schools Trust (ODBST), which is a Multi Academy Trust. Governors of the school believe that this will assist in achieving three strategic priorities: i) ensuring that the school continues to thrive and have a future into the medium- to long-term; ii) supporting the school’s vision and values, whilst welcoming children of all faiths and none; and iii) ensuring that the school provides the best possible start in educational for the children of Cold Harbour.
Governors will be hosting an information evening on Monday 10th June 2024 from 5.30pm-6.30pm and will be initiating a five-week consultation period from this date onwards. The consultation will end on Monday 15th July 2024. We welcome comments and questions from parents/carers of the school’s children and members of the wider community and its surrounds. The response form is attached on the link below and can be sent directly to the school. Further background on our plans to convert to an academy, and contact details to comment or ask a question, are provided below.
