Academy Update

Thank you to those of you who took the time to attend either a drop-in session or respond in writing to the recent consultation exercise on academy status.

Having considered the feedback received, both Governing Bodies voted unanimously to proceed with the conversion to academy status and the formation of a multi academy trust with St Mary's Cockerton CE Primary School.

Following this decision, representatives from both Governing Bodies then met with representatives of the Diocese, and we are delighted to share with you that the Diocese has now approved the applications from both schools to convert to academy status. The next step is to submit an application to the Department for Education. We shall keep you updated as we make further progress
