Letter from Wheelers Lane – Confirming start of formal Academisation Consultation.

We have just been forwarded the following letter that has been sent out by Wheelers Lane Technology College,

Ref: DHe/MBr

7th December 2016

Following the governing body meeting on Tuesday 6th December our governors agreed unanimously to continue with the exploration of academisation within STEP.  They will now begin a process that involves a notification to the DFE which will release funding to explore the implications of such a move in greater depth.  This will include issues relating to transition of staff, buildings and finance.  This process will also include a more formal period of consultation with all stakeholders, including staff, governors, parents, students and the wider community.

This is not the final decision for us to become an academy.  Governors will review the information gathered through these actions before making their decision later in the academic year.

Yours faithfully

D HENSON

Headteacher
