|William Hogarth Primary School To Revert To One Form Per Year|
School, rated 'Good' says the demand for local primary places has decreased
The William Hogarth School will return to being a one-form school over the course of the next year. This is in order to focus funding more effectively on existing pupils and those who name the school as their number one choice.
As with all Local Authority-funded schools, The William Hogarth School’s
funding is paid per pupil. In real terms and for all schools across the
country, this has been reduced by 8% since 2010.
The governing body decided that holding places open created a less stable
and less cost-effective learning environment, with some children joining
the school for short periods of time while in transition. The School will
not have class sizes above the accepted norm in other Chiswick schools,
and the governors are committed to a maximum of around 30 per class.
