Dear Parents / Carers,
Prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of you will recall that in December 2019 the Diocesan Academy Policy was revised with the aim that all Diocesan schools will become academies within one of four Diocesan education trusts by July 2022.
Therefore, in line with Diocesan policy, our Governing Body has decided to consult with parents, carers, staff and other stakeholders, on whether each school should become an academy and join the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust.
We are therefore commencing formal consultation today, Monday 29th March 2021, for a period of three school term weeks. Consultation will therefore end at 3pm on Friday 30th April 2021.
Please find attached 3 important documents:
We would encourage all parents to respond to the consultation process. Further details can be found in the attached letter.
