Dear Parents,

We wrote to you on 22 May, to provide an update on the proposed expansion of William Ransom and our understanding of the timeline of key dates.

We are now pleased to be able to confirm that the Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) information event for parents and members of the local community will take place at the school on THURSDAY 9 JULY.  You are invited to come into school anytime between 4pm and 8.30pm. 

This informal information event organised and hosted by members from HCC, will provide you with the opportunity to view draft plans, provide feedback and ask them any questions you may have.  Along with members of the Governing Body, we will both be attending the event. 

For those unable to attend, a copy of the draft plans will be published on the school website following the information event.

We do hope you will take this opportunity to pop in and take a look at what the facilities at William Ransom may look like in the future.

May we take this opportunity to remind you that we are currently in the second period of public consultation, whereby HCC are welcoming comments on the proposal to expand William Ransom to two form entry.  This consultation period closes on Wednesday 24 June.  Please go to http://www.hertsdirect.org/your-council/work/publicnotices/csnotices/ for further information.

As always, if you do wish to provide any comments/feedback to the Governing Body at this stage, please do email governors@wransom.herts.sch.uk, otherwise we look forward to seeing you on 9 July.

Yours sincerely
