Academisation process and updates

Updates and useful information will be added to this page as the process unfolds. 
 
To understand the background to the process and the decision made by the Governors, please take a look at the 'The Future of Whytemead: Business Plan' document below.

We held two Zoom meetings for parents and carers, at which it was possible to ask questions. Minutes of each of those meetings are below and recordings are available should you wish to watch those meeting (please email srichardson@whytemead.school for a copy of the recordings).

 

If you have a question or feedback about Whytemead becoming part of Schoolsworks please do send your questions to Peter Morrod,Chair of the Governors: pmorrod@whytemead.school

 

The first meeting took place on the 17th May. Minutes can be read below or if you would prefer a recording of the event, please email srichardson@whytemead.school

The second meeting took place on the 24th May. Minutes can be read below or if you would prefer a recording of the event, please email srichardson@whytemead.school
One question asked by a parent (and, indeed, a major area of focus for the Governors during their research) concerned the involvement of parents in governance once academisation had taken place. This was answered during the session but the document below sets out in detail how parent involvement in governance - known as School Community Councils - will work once Whytemead becomes part of Schoolsworks. 
 
As well as answering the question it may be of interest to those of you considering joining the Whytemead School Community Council.
