The governors in conjunction with the Diocese and with the full support of the DfE are now embarking on the next stage of the journey to formalise these arrangements and become part of IFtL as an academy.
Governors and the leadership are very positive about this venture as we believe that IFtL will be the best partner to help us make the necessary improvements. Having said that their mission and values are also very much aligned with ours. We are both insistent that the needs of the children come first and that we want to provide all children with the very best education possible. IFtL are also keen to ensure that we
retain our unique ethos and character so that we can continue to serve our local community.
We are very keen to hear from parents and indeed all stakeholders, their thoughts on this next step. To that end we are arranging a consultation. This will commence on 5th February 2020 and close on 11th March. We would like to invite you to a meeting on 5th February at 6pm at the North site in the hall. Members of the IFtL team will be present alongside governors and the leadership team as well as the Diocese to answer your questions following a short presentation from the CEO of IFtL, Sarah Bennett.
