To all parents, carers, governors and staff
Nine of the Sheffield special schools are each proposing to change their legal category from Community Special Schools to Foundation Special Schools and at the same time to acquire a Foundation (a charitable trust) otherwise than under the School Standards and Framework Act of 1998.
In order to explain our intentions we enclose a proposal which will explain all the details of what this change involves. We would like to know what you think of our plans, so, over the next four weeks we are inviting you to take part in our public consultation and enclose, at the end of the proposal a pro-forma that you may wish to complete to express your views. This should then be returned to the school. Alternatively you may wish to express your views via the schools website which are on the front page of this proposal.
This consultation period will start on Monday 17th November 2014 and will finish on the 14th December 2014.
