Academy status consultation
Then Governing Body have decided to go to Consultation over our school becoming an Academy as part of the Lincoln Anglican Academy Trust (LAAT).
After reviewing the options available to our school and with the academy agenda now a reality for all schools, Governors believe that they have chosen the best course of action. We are very keen to hear the views of all stakeholders and friends of Whaplode Church of England Primary School, regarding this important decision.
Academies are independent state-funded schools which receive their funding directly from central government, directly through the Education Funding Agency (EFA), rather than a local authority, As a church school and if we convert to be an academy we will automatically retain our religious designation.
You can find more information on the Governors' decision to commence the consultation process in their letter to parents.
You can find information on the LAAT in their Frequently Asked Questions document.
