Multi-Academy Trust Consultation Outcome for Lemington Riverside

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are writing to give you an update on the outcome of the consultation for Lemington Riverside to apply to join a newly proposed multi-academy trust (MAT) with the eight other schools in the Outer West Learning (OWL) Trust.

Our Governing Body here at Lemington Riverside have studied the outcome of the consultation exercise extensively and explored all options for and against converting our school to an academy.

Following this period of exploration, all members of the Governing Body of Lemington Riverside Primary School have voted not to apply to become part of the proposed multi-academy trust.

The staff team and Governing Body here at Lemington Riverside are now looking forward to continuing to grow and develop our school as we begin the next chapter in our journey together.

Best wishes,

Robert Wilson (Chair of the Governing Body)

Craig Heeley (Headteacher)
