Governors at two schools in Desborough are seeking views from parents on a possible merger.

Havelock Junior and Havelock Infant Schools have written to parents about the plans asking whether they would like to see them merge.

At present, the two schools, which are adjacent to one another in Havelock Street, have separate governing bodies and headteachers.

However, the schools say they are now seeking views from the community on a number of proposals, which could see the schools remain separate but with only one headteacher, or see them merge while keeping two separate governing bodies.

Other options include separate headteachers but only one governing body or a complete merger, which would see them have only one headteacher and one governing body.

The letter to parents said: “The two schools are next door to each other but they are separate schools.

“They have their own governing body and headteacher.

“The two schools serve the same community.

“Most children move from the infants to the junior school.

“Governors think that it will be better for the children if the schools work more closely with each other in the future.

“They are looking at further ways of doing this and would like to know what you think.”

People are asked to send their views on the proposals to havelockhaveyoursay@gmail.com.

Alternatively, people can write their views in a letter and send it to either of the schools or to Desborough Library or Desborough heritage Centre.

Anyone who emails or writes a letter is asked to state whether they are a parent or carer, member of staff or an interested member of the community.

More information about the request for views about a possible merger can also be found at www.havelockinfantschool.co.uk or www.havelockjuniors.co.uk.
