Academy Consultation – South York Multi-Academy Trust
Over the last three years the schools belonging to the South York cluster have worked together in a partnership that was deemed to be a soft federation. This has worked well for all the schools as we have been able to share skills, talents, resources, curriculum expertise and professional development. All the schools have benefitted from the collaborative practices which have secured the best outcomes for our children. By considering the option of formalising our existing partnerships the governors are exploring the option of converting to academy status and establishing a South York multi-academy trust together with a group of local schools. Please refer to the Academy Conversion Paper.
