Rodmell School success – but it’s not over yet!

There was good news back in July for Rodmell School.

As you will see, there is a requirement for the governors to produce an acceptable long-term plan during term 5. That means they have to submit a plan between 18 April and 26 May 2017!  I’m sure this will become a hot topic during the county council elections which are due to take place in May 2017.
