Applying for Academy status
Dear Parents and Carers,
We write to inform you that this term the Governing Board of Upland Primary unanimously agreed to apply to the Department for Education (DfE) for permission to begin the process of applying for Academy status as a Multi Academy Trust (MAT). The governors took this decision after lengthy deliberation, mindful of the current educational climate encouraging schools to collaborate more closely and also with an ongoing ambition to be proactive in securing resources for the future benefit of our school. We believe that Academy status will enable the school to thrive and prosper and continue to provide a high quality learning and teaching environment for your children. Importantly, it will also allow the school to be more in control of its own destiny.
