Diocesan Update

To follow on from Bishop Paul’s recent letter on academisation, please find attached the following documents:

Academisation update – growing our family of schools

Academies FAQs April 2023

We hope that these documents help bring clarity for governors and schools on the next steps of the academisation strategy.

The Diocese has a planned series of information meetings to support this update, however we know sometimes very specific issues or questions can arise that are not addressed in the general documentation – should this be the case we would encourage you to call Julie Jones or Michael Merrick at the earliest opportunity.

For any questions directly relating to BEBCMAT, please feel free to contact the CEO, Helen O’Neill.
