Academy Order - Letter to the school community
To Parents/Carers of Pupils of Oldmixon Primary School
Re: CONVERSION TO ACADEMY STATUS
As you are aware our governing body submitted an application to the Regional Schools Commissioner on 20th February 2017 to convert to an academy and form a local Multi Academy Trust (MAT).
As part of this process, the Governing Body consulted, parents, staff and other interested parties on any views or questions they may have about whether or not Oldmixon Primary School should become an academy. The results and responses to questions raised through the consultation can be found on our school website.
I am very pleased to inform you that on the 21st April 2017, Rebecca Clark, Regional Schools Commissioner, South West, wrote to the Chair of Governors enclosing an Academy Order which enables the school to convert to an academy. We are absolutely delighted by this news and are now able to begin the legal process of conversion to ensure a smooth transition towards a Multi Academy Trust.
We will of course keep you fully informed of developments.
