We are pleased to be able to inform you that the Regional Schools Commissioner has agreed for Elms Bank, Unsworth Primary School and Broad Oak Sports College to form a Multi-Academy Trust. The Governing Body at each school has considered the current changes that are affecting schools as well as the factors that will impact on us in the future. At Elms Bank we have considered becoming an academy over the last eighteen months and have wanted to join with other schools to become a Multi-Academy Trust. We are now able to start this journey.
The trust will be led by Elaine Parkinson, Executive Headteacher of Elms Bank working with Christine Reynolds the Headteacher of Unsworth Primary School, and Paul Greenhalgh the Headteacher of Broad Oak Sports College. All three Headteachers will have important roles to play in supporting the development of the trust and ensuring excellent outcomes for each young person educated in our schools.
Please refer to letter and Q&A information download on the left hand side for further information.
A parents' information session will be held on Tuesday 20th November at 6.30pm at school.
