In the July newsletter, we informed everyone that the Governing Body of Springbank Primary School was looking to work with other schools. We have now found the perfect opportunity to become an academy under the Academies Act 2010 and we are so excited that we have now been issued with academy orders by the Secretary of State (agreeing to it becoming part of an academy) and we are proposing to join The White Hills Park Trust. Further information about what becoming an academy means, and how to comment on the proposals, is in the letter you have received via email and also in the important information section of the website.
How can I find out more?
Virtual group meetings will be held at Springbank Primary School as indicated above on Tuesday November 10th 2020.
There is also more information about academies on the DfE website: http://www.education.gov.uk/academies
To respond to this consultation on whether the school’s academy conversion should take place, please follow the link below which will take you to the consultation response page.
The closing date for representations to be made is Friday 4th December 2020.
