Over the last two years, discussions between amongst the Confederation schools have led us to the conclusion that partnership working is valuable and should be developed further through a legal structure which also protects each school’s autonomy. The proposed model is a cooperative learning Trust, which will offer benefits for all of the Confederation schools.
The Legal Consultation
In order to set up the co-operative Trust, four community schools:
Busbridge Infant School
Godalming Junior School
Milford School and
Moss Lane School
are proposing to change their legal school category from community to foundation. This then allows the legal entity of the Godalming Learning Partnership to come into being.
The other schools in the Confederation will next decide if they want to join the GLP and many have already expressed their wish to do so.
