3/3/15 Update:

Dear Parents/Stakeholders

There were no comments from parents regarding the MAT consultation and no one attended the Stakeholders Meeting on Wednesday February 25th. Given that there does not appear to be any strength of feeling against the proposal voiced during the consultation, Minsthorpe is proceeding with the proposal to form a Multi-Academy Trust with Stockingate Mill and Carlton and has submitted a business case for a significant change to an existing academy. We think this will be the start of something big, hopefully leading to a stronger relationship with all of our primary feeder schools.

Minsthorpe Community College and some of its local primary feeder schools want to work together to ensure students in the South Elmsall, South Kirkby and Upton area benefit for the lifetime of their education. The possibility for schools to work together from Year 1 through to Year 13 will provide far-reaching educational benefits and social mobility for the students in all the schools’ care and for this reason we are proposing the formation of the Minsthorpe Multi-Academy Trust (MMAT).

We have a duty to ensure that all pupils in the SESKU area attend good and better schools. Outstanding learning and teaching is at the heart of any successful school and addressing this in schools within this partnership is a major reason for our wishing to form the MMAT. High expectations for the standard of teaching and learning, clear monitoring, support, Professional Development, quality assurance, continuous evaluation and promoting behaviour for learning are endemic to our approach. We will build capacity within our organisational structure for a network of staff to support the transformation of leadership, teaching and learning within other schools.
