WHIS & HJS Federated Board Consultation Process - 2021

Over many years West Hove Infant School and Hove Junior School have worked closely together to enhance the educational provision at both schools and to provide an environment where all children can be themselves and reach their full potential. The schools pride themselves in being creative, inclusive, and caring.


Together with the Governing Board of West Hove Infant School, we formed the view that a school federation, a group of two or more schools that make a formal commitment to work together under a single governing body, represents a strong and exciting opportunity to further develop and deliver extraordinary education for our children.


Following our public consultation, which ran from 26th April to 11th June, and taking into account all responses received from parents and carers, staff and our local community, both governing boards agreed to federate with effect from 10th September 2021.


This means that we can develop the informal partnership that already exists for the benefit of all our children, and will formalise the commitment from both schools to work together and build upon the success of informal collaboration over the years.


You can find the public consultation document below and our confirmation letter to parents and carers, which was issued on 15th June 2021.  Minutes from the board meeting on 14th June are available on the Full Governing Board page of this site, following their formal approval in early July.


We have recently completed the election process for two Parent Governors, who will join the Federated Board effective 10th September 2021.  A letter detailing the election results is attached below.
