Consultation for joining Catholic Academy Trust

Consultation opens on Tuesday 27th February, 2024 and closes on Wednesday 27th March, 2024.


The governors of St Mary’s RC Primary School have taken the decision to initiate the consultation process regarding the acquisition of academy status and joining a Catholic Academy Trust with our partner Catholic schools in the Deanery.


A consultation does not mean we have taken a final decision to convert to an Academy, but that we wish to seek the views of all our community to inform the final decision. To support you in developing your knowledge and understanding of what is involved in becoming an academy we have prepared a questions and answers consultation leaflet which will be available from 27th February, 2024,  on the school’s website at 


Please attend our Parent meeting on Tuesday 19th March at 5pm to find out more information and ask any questions you may have. You are invited to give responses. The response form is available below. Responses can be handed into the office or emailed  to:
