Following the completion of the consulation process with staff, parents, carers and community stakeholders on becoming part of the Tarka Learning Partnership Multi-Academy Trust, the Governing Body has now published its Report. The Governing Body's conclusion is as follows:
As part of the Consultation process and despite the circumstances relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Governing Body is confident that it provided staff, parents and stakeholders with opportunities to provide feedback, ask questions and raise concerns about the decision to join Tarka.
Throughout the consultation process both prior to the decision and afterwards, staff were given many opportunities to contribute and raise questions which may have helped with their understanding of what the conversion will mean to the school as well as how it will affect their employment and future opportunities. Feedback to Governors through this process was that in the majority staff were happy with the decision and were looking forward to taking advantage of the opportunities that the conversion would bring and indeed this was already happening.
Parents had been advised of the decision to join Tarka prior to the formal consultation process and there had been no negative feedback at that time and so because of the lack of consultation responses Governors will take that as a positive that parents and also stakeholders do not have any concerns regarding Fremington Primary’s conversion.
