Update from Swanshurst school
Dear Parents and Carers
Following the Governing Body meeting on Thursday 1st December, our Governors agreed unanimously to continue with the exploration of Swanshurst becoming an academy 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 finance, buildings and the transition of staff. 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.
