News item from 17/1/17Future of Ockley School in question?At very short notice, parents of all current pupils at the Ockley base of Scott Broadwood School have been invited to an urgent meeting to discuss the school's future.

Please be aware that last week reception parents were told with 3 days notice that all reception children were being moved to the Capel branch. 

Dated 16th January in reference to a meeting tomorrow, 18th january, it reads as follows:
Meeting for the Scott-Broadwood School Community The Governors and I would like to invite all parents and carers to a meeting to discuss future options for our school. The meeting will be held on Wed 18th Jan at 6.30pm and the venue will be the Ranmore Building (Main building) at the Ashcombe Secondary school.  There is plenty of parking in front of the Ranmore building and the meeting will be held in the main school hall. I am aware there is a rumour that the Governors are considering the option of closing Scott-Broadwood, Please rest assured that this is not the case. We are committed to ensuring that we continue to deliver high quality education for our pupils, current and those to come. However, in the current economic climate, in which central government is making less money available for education, we need – as do all schools – to consider how best to maintain financial viability whilst delivering the best quality of education to our pupils. We recognise that the choices in front of us have great importance to the communities around Ockley and Capel, and therefore invite you to join us in informal consultation on the way forward.  Both the Diocese of Guildford and the Local Authority will be present at the meeting.  I apologise for the short notice of such a meeting, but we need to act quickly in order to give as much time for consultation as possible.
Standard text page regarding the school:

"The small school with great expectations"

Scott-Broadwood School is a Church of England school for children aged 4-7 years. There are currently about 80 children on roll.

The School used to comprise the village schools of Ockley and Capel which were federated in 1994 under the administration of one headteacher and Governing Body. This arrangement provided greater financial security and made it easier for a small school to meet the demands of the National Curriculum. The Schooloperated on two sites (known as ‘Bases’) but each retained its unique village school character and links with its own community. (until March 2017)

The name 'Scott-Broadwood' is derived from Jane Scott who founded Ockley School in 1841 and the Broadwood family who created Capel School in 1826.

What does a Scott-Broadwood education offer?
· Caring family atmosphere
· Individual attention
· Small class sizes
· Experienced staff
· Excellent educational facilities
· High standards of behaviour
· Pleasant grounds and rural surroundings
· Close parental involvement
· Integral part of village life
· The special ethos of a church school

As a result, children receive not only a high quality education tailored to individual needs, but also develop the confidence and sense of self-worth which comes from being a valued member of a small community

Catchment area
The school primarily serves the communities of Ockley, Capel, Forest Green, Walliswood, Okewood Hill and Coldharbour.

Children from other areas are welcome but, if places are limited, priority is given to children who live locally or who have religious affiliation with one of the churches in these parishes.

Full details of the Admissions Policy can be obtained from the School.
