MAT UPDATE - Application Approved by Regional Schools Commissioner

We had some exciting news just before the half term holiday which effects the whole school community and I am happy to share this with you.

In Autumn term, the Governing Body undertook a consultation exercise regarding joining the West Lakes' Multi-Academy Trust. We have been working with the trust over recent months and taken your thoughts on-board. The Governing Body unanimously agreed to pursue an application to the regional schools commissioner to join the West Lakes MAT in December 2018. This has been approved subject to a period of due diligence. During the next few months we will be looking more deeply into the legal and financial aspects of moving to a multi-academy trust and also getting answers to any further questions which you might have about the changes which will take place.

This is an significant time in the history of our school and we hope that as a community we can embrace this venture with confidence. If you have questions, queries or areas which you would like the Governing Body to explore, please take the time to contact our Chair of Governors in the following ways:

In writing - please leave at the school office
