Rogate C. E. Primary School Downland Village Schools Federation (DVSF)

Made in West Sussex with

Serif WebPlus X8 in 2021

Following a six-week public consultation, the governors of the Downland Village Schools Federation (DVSF) and of Compton & Up Marden CofE Primary (CU Primary) have decided to go ahead with a proposal to all three schools (Rake, Rogate and CU Primary) together inside a newly-constituted DVSF. The report below (see “Information from DVSF”) gives the background and the evidence gathered from the consultation, which informed our decision to go ahead with the proposal. However, for those who would like to read more about us, federations generally, and some of the responses we had to our consultation, we hope this page will help.
