South Walney Junior School to consult on academy plans

Members of the public are invited to find out more about plans for South Walney Junior School to join the South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust.

A public consultation meeting will be held at the school on Thursday 16th February from 5pm to 6pm with a presentation and panel question and answer session about the proposal to academise.

It will be led by South Walney Junior School Headteacher Zena Lines with Professor Andrew Wren, who is Executive Head Teacher and CEO of the Trust, alongside Director of Marketing and Communications Kathryn Kittley.

Zena said people can ask questions in person at the event or post them via a form on the school’s website to be asked at the meeting.

The MAT Trustees met and resolved in principle to accept the school into the SCMAT and a formal application has been submitted.

If all the current applications go ahead, SCMAT will have seven schools in September 2023.

South Walney Juniors is going through the application process alongside Newbarns Primary and Nursery School, Cambridge Primary School and Victoria Infant and Nursery School. They will join current members Chetywnde, Ormsgill and Vickerstown schools.
