MID ESSEX ANGLICAN ACADEMY TRUST EXPANSION CONSULTATION
In 2013, Shenfield St Mary's Church of England Primary School converted to an academy and set up the Mid Essex Anglican Academy Trust. The articles of association are set up so that this is a multi-academy trust, as opposed to a single stand-alone academy. As you know, to date, Shenfield St Mary’s remains a single school within the trust. However, with the government expectation that all schools should considering become academies and no schools are allowed to become single academies, the trust will be expanding in the near future. Mountnessing Church of England (VC) Primary School has requested via the Regional Schools Commissioner to join our trust. Mountnessing is a good school and will have equal status within the trust, maintain its own day-to-day leadership and management organisation.
There are many positive outcomes for the school and therefore our pupils. For example:
If you have any comments or questions regarding this change, please send them to the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1st February 2018. Depending on the level of interest, the Academy Trust Directors may run a consultation meeting for parents / carers at Shenfield St Mary’s.
