General Election

19th May 2017
The Electorate Team formally request to use the school premises when local or general elections occur. Historically, the school and governors have requested that the voting be held elsewhere due to the disruption to learning and the impact upon childcare. An alternative location was trialled but was found to restrict the number of people voting and access for the wider populace . As a result, we have been told that our school is needed for local and general elections.
When the school site is used, the children cannot attend school due to safeguarding and child protection concerns. Their safety and wellbeing must be our primary concern. We apologise for the impact on our children, families and staff but are unable to refuse use of the premises. Thank you for your continuing support.
