Conversion to Academy
As you will be aware from my letter dated 31st March, 2014, the Governing Bodies of Dovedale Primary School, Shardlow Primary School, Sawley Junior School and Sawley Infants & Nursery School are proposing to establish a Multi-Academy Trust and we are currently undergoing consultation.
It was lovely to see so many parents at the consultation evening last night and we thank you for your continued support.
Please click here to access all the documentation we have shared – the original letter, a parent information leaflet and PowerPoint highlighting similarities and differences between LA schools and academy schools.
Although the final decision regarding conversion rests with the Governing Body, any views raised by parents are valued and will be considered.
Our consultation completes on 9th May, 2014; if you have any questions or comments regarding the conversion of Sawley Junior School to an academy, please write to the Chair Of Governors Councillor Daniel Walton via the school email address.
