I have received notification that Green Lane Primary School in Worcester Park and Brookfield Primary School in Sutton are to become Academies.
Brookfield Primary School entered into a funding agreement with the Department for Education and Sutton Council ceased maintaining the school on 1st November 2016. You can view the letter from the Secretary of State of Education, Rt Hon Justine Greening, here.
Green Lane Primary and Nursery School is currently consulting on becoming an Academy and join the Coombe multi-academy trust. The consultation runs until the 16th December 2016 and they plan to be operational by September 2017. You can view their letter here.
I offer both schools my full support and anything I can do to ease their transition into Academies.
