A NEW ERA - STEPNEY CONVERTS TO AN ACADEMY
From 1st November 2016, we became an academy as part of the Yorkshire & Humber Cooperative Learning Trust. This is a Multi-Academy Trust, which will comprise the following schools, when all the legal details have gone through for these:
Chiltern Primary School
Ings Primary School
Kelvin Hall Secondary School
Priory Primary School
St. George's Primary School
Stepney Primary School
We had stated in the summer that Stepney Primary School would be converting to an academy on 1st September 2016. Owing to delays in the legal process, this was put back. It seems to be that the majority of schools who convert to academies have delays with the land transfer documents and we were no exception to this. Fortunately, the various local authority departments/solicitors etc have sorted the legal processes.
While we have been waiting for this to go through, we have been working with our YHCTL partners since before the summer and are already putting many new practices into place. It is certainly an exciting time for us all.
The Co-operative Values are:
Also running through these core values are a set of ethical values that underpin the work of all Trust members:
- Social Responsibility
- Caring for Others
