Braunton Learning Co-operative Consultation

Braunton Learning Co-Operative Trust  will be launching on 1st September 2019

The consultation period for the proposed Cooperative Trust has now ended and on Thursday 4th July 2019 governors from all six schools met to consider the views and comments received during the statutory consultation process about the proposal to set up the Braunton Learning  Co-operative.  Following individual board meetings held by each school, we are pleased to inform you that each Governing Board voted to implement the proposal from 1st September.

This will mean that Caen Community Primary School, Kingsacre Primary School, Marwood School and Southmead Primary School will change their legal school category from community to foundation and, at the same time, acquire charitable status as a shared cooperative Trust.  Braunton Academy and Georgeham C of E (VC) Primary School have voted to become  partner schools within the Trust.  We would like to thank everyone who participated in the process and look forward to sharing  our plans for 2019/20 following our first Trust Board meeting at the beginning of October.

We are delighted that all six schools voted to set up the Trust and look forward to working more closely with the schools in our wider community.  Kingsacre will be represented on the Trust Board by Mrs Cole and Briony Tuohey (as Chair of Governors).  We, together with all the governors and the staff, are excited about the opportunities this will bring for joint activities for pupils and enhanced support structures for staff, subject coordinators and heads.

A copy of the Determination Document with full results from the consultation process is available for you to read below, together with a copy of the letter that has been sent to all parents and stakeholders confirming the Trust launch.
