Governors have been reviewing the matter of Academies over the last few years and have regularly discussed this topic at their Governing Body meetings.
The consensus until recently has been that we saw no benefit to our children in making a change. However, the Governors are now of the opinion that it is now in our children’s best interest to start the process to convert to academy status because:
- The support offered by the Local Authority (Worcestershire County Council) has diminished.
- The Diocese of Worcester has recently set up a Multi-Academy Trust (DoWMAT) which we believe will provide better support for our school and our children in the future.
Documents relating to the conversion process will appear on this page. The latest documents are at the top.
