Latest email to prospective parents

Headteacher Kay Wood sent out the following email this week to applicants for a place at The Swan School in September 2019. If you are an applicant and did not get the email, then contact the River Learning Trust by email at [email protected] Please note that this event is only for 2019 applicants, not people who are considering applying in future years….

Thank you again for applying for a place for your child to join our founding cohort of Swan School students. On 1st March you will find out from Oxfordshire County Council whether your child has been offered a place at The Swan School for September 2019.

We understand that this is an exciting yet sometimes stressful time for families, so we invite you to an information event for prospective Swan School parents/carers and students to help make the process a little easier. This event will be held on Monday 11th February from 6.30pm to 8pm at New Marston Primary School.

I will be sharing with you some of the exciting developments we have been working on since I officially started in my role earlier this month. We will also clarify next steps for families wanting to join us at The Swan, whether you are offered a place on 1st March or not.

There will also be an opportunity to speak more informally with myself and other members of our planning team, asking any questions that you may have, and to get to know other families who will soon be part of our Swan School community. Light refreshments will be provided.

Children are more than welcome to attend — they are, after all, the most important people in this process — and there will be a chance for them to have their say about some of our plans for the school.

Please let us know if you are likely to attend, as this will help us with our planning.
