You will be aware that the Governors of Saddleworth School have been considering our options for how we will work in partnership with schools within Saddleworth and Lees. The Governors have now made the decision to move forward with the proposal of becoming an associate partner and strengthen this relationship with the schools in Saddleworth and Lees.
All schools in the partnership have considered what is happening both nationally and locally and are keen to protect the strong working relationship we have established, working more formally in collaboration with a range of strong partners across Saddleworth and Lees. Our vision for such partnership is of a 'strong family of inspiring schools that serve our local community and contribute fully to the highest standard of provision of education in the area and collaborate with other partners to achieve common goals.'
The governors have agreed that converting at this time would not be feasible given the current situation with the proposed school build but have made it clear that they wish for the school to become part of the foundation as soon as it has been rebuilt. As such there is no need for formal consultation but we do want to know your views on the proposals. To this end we will be holding an information session in school on 15 May 2017 at 6.00 pm. We are also making all the information available to you via our website.
