Academy Conversion – South York Multi-Academy Trust
Over the last four years, the schools belonging to the South York geographical cluster have worked together in a soft federation partnership. This has worked well for all the schools as we have been able to share skills, talents, resources, curriculum expertise and professional development opportunities. All the schools have benefitted from these collaborative practices which have helped to secure the best outcomes for our children.
Following a lengthy period of consultation, it has been decided that Lord Deramore’s Primary School will formalise our existing partnership by converting to academy status and become a founding member of a South York multi-academy trust.
In September 2017, Lord Deramore’s Primary School received an ‘Academy Order’ by the Department for Education. Governors are working with the local authority and the Multi-Academy Trust to decide on any potential academy conversion date.
Updates will be regularly provided and available below.
