A multi–academy trust (MAT) is a grouping of schools formed as a strategic collaboration to improve and maintain high educational standards collectively, sharing central support resources, facilities and staff expertise to develop our curriculum and ensure the highest standards of teaching and learning for our children.
We have been considering how we might develop our partnerships to best meet the needs of young people and families in our community. One of the most appropriate options could be to join the Lighthouse Schools Partnership, which is an existing MAT of Gordano School and five primary schools in Portishead and Portbury. If Wraxall Primary School joined the LSP, it would be as part of a new local hub of schools in the Backwell and surrounding areas.
As part of the ongoing discussions, there will be a parent consultation event, the date and time of which will be confirmed in due course. This meeting will offer parents a valuable opportunity to find out more about the LSP, and ask any questions that they might have.
More information can be found in the letter sent to parents and carers on Friday 22nd September 2017 (see below) and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
