Pre Opening Launch Event
On Wednesday 5th June Payne Jeff Payne & John Gibson attended the Pre-Opening Launch at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in Westminster. It was an inspiring day featuring key note speeches from Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove and the Parliamentary under Secretary, Lord Nash. It was encouraging to know that we have the support of the Dept. for Education to help us through the challenges and that this will be a team effort with a strong team. It feels like the school is starting to become a reality and that our vision for a Church of England School with high academic standards, good discipline and an environmental aspect will soon be available to parents.

Applications
Our admissions policy will soon be available. We’ll post a draft on the website and you will be able to comment on it before it is finalised. If you are a prospective parent who may apply for a place for September 2014 let us know via the ‘reply’ option and we will tell you how to apply. It is not too late for prospective parents to register interest so please feel free to forward this email to friends and neighbours.

What is happening this month?
Our planning group has already met since the Pre-Opening Launch meeting. Some of us will be meeting with Ealing Council this week, others are starting to develop the school logo and uniform, others are beginning to plan for the development of the school buildings.

Updates
We would love to visit your nursery, community group or church to tell you all about the project. If you are interested in a visit please let Jeff know via the ‘reply’ option.
