"Although the closure of the Ockley base of Scott-Broadwood is said to be 'temporary' it is hard to see how it can open again with no teachers or pupils.  Removal vans were seen over the Easter break. It seems clear that closure is permanent. 

A group of  villagers are looking into the possibility of setting up a free school in Ockley. 
To do this, we need to file a long application to the Department of Education. We also need to put together a team of people with the appropriate skills.  
If you can help with any of the following, or know of anyone else who can, then we'd be delighted to hear from you. 

We need:  
Education expertise
- an individual who has experience as Head or Deputy Head of a state sector infant school.
Finance expertise- an individual with a professional background in finance who can evidence a good record or someone with experience as a school business manager.
Academy governance expertise- 
an individual with experience of academy governance, such as a chair of governors at a good school or trust.
Other areas of expertise- t
his could cover things such as: marketing, HR, project management, legal expertise etc.   

All volunteers will be gratefully accepted: the more who volunteer, the less time each person needs to set aside to help.  Please email us at ockleyschool@gmail.com if you can help or just want more information."
