The Federation of Church Schools of Shalfleet and Yarmouth


The governing body have been looking at the ‘community’ aspect of our Federation. Governors recognise the significance of the work with our stakeholders; pupils, parents/carers, staff, the wider community, the Diocese and the Local Authority, to the success of the Federation. We discussed how our mission statement drives our interaction with our community and to provide clarity for everyone, we have agreed a ‘Community Plan’. The aim of the plan is to ensure our engagements are meaningful and beneficial for everyone.

West Wight School Implementation Notices

Dear Parents and Carers

As previously reported we now regularly hold implementation meetings with the Local Authority. These meetings take place approximately every 6 weeks and look at a number of areas, such as Finance, Building, HR, Admissions, etc. which are all relevant in this phase. 

We established the protocol for sharing information with the school and wider communities as we all recognise the importance of good communication. In brief, following each meeting, an Executive Summary will be produced, agreed and shared within two weeks. It was agreed that it would be best if the meeting information would be held centrally on the IOW Council website. A link to this site is indicated below. A Frequently Asked Questions document will be published there too and we would encourage you to let us know any (new) questions you may have which we will look to have answered at the next meeting. We hope this will give you quick and accurate updates on the process and other pertinent information via the FAQ document. Questions can be sent to: or handed into the school office.

Best wishes 

Carla Bradshaw, Chair of Governors
