Academy Consultation

Governors are proposing that Overdale Junior School becomes an academy and joins with a group of other schools to form a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) called OAK Trust.

In considering conversion to academy status and forming a MAT, the over-riding concerns of governors are to ensure that our school continues to provide the best possible standard of education and care for our children.

With this in mind, your views are important to us and we are extremely keen to hear your thoughts.

A consultation was held between 9th March and 7th April 2017.

Please see full details in the letter below. There is also a 'Frequently Asked Questions' document.

A joint meeting with the Infant School was also held to allow questions in relation to the proposed change.


Thank you to everyone for contributing to the consultation. Further information on the outcome will be shared as soon as it is available.


Please see attached Application Forms for Trustees and Members of the Oak Mat for your consideration and completion if you wish to be considered for a Trustee or Member.

Yours sincerely

Mrs J Hart
