Crawley Ridge Junior School

Live the Learning; Learn for Life

MAT Consultation Begins

On 3rd March 2017, David Oakley, Chair of Governors, wrote to parents and carers of children at the school to explain that Crawley Ridge Junior School is now ready to join with four other like-minded primary-age schools to create a strong Multi-Academy Trust. The formal consultation process is now underway. 

Five founding schools are now in a position to propose a more formal partnership within a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). The Governing Bodies have agreed in principle to the conversion, but the final decision on whether or not to create the MAT will be taken by each Governing Body based on what is considered best for each school, its children, staff and wider community.

As part of the decision making process, each Governing Body is committed to undertaking a consultation with stakeholders and will take their views into account before any conversion is formalised and the funding agreements are signed.

Please see below the MAT Consultation document and note that the consultation closes on Friday 31st March at 3.00pm

There will be three identical meetings for parents and carers from all five schools to come and find out more about our proposals. The Headteachers from each school will join together to share a presentation and answer questions. The meeting will be hosted at Crawley Ridge Junior School on Monday 20th March at 19:30. We look forward to seeing you there.
