The Governing Body of Heysham High School has approved the choice of Tauheedul Education Trust (TET) to become the sponsor of the school and the school will now begin the process of converting to become an academy within the TET network. You can find out more about TET here - http://www.tetrust.org/
TET is a mixed Multi-Academy Trust, running a diverse group of schools across the country. There are currently nineteen schools within TET working together in five regions across the country, known as Tauheedul Education Partnerships. TET is a high achieving Multi-Academy Trust and all of the Trust’s schools that have been inspected so far by OFSTED have been judged to be outstanding. TET schools also enjoy some of the best performance results in the DfE school league tables and, year upon year, Tauheedul pupils secure the lowest absence rates in England. All TET schools share a commitment to a child-centred vision and focus on educational excellence, character development and service to local communities. TET also supports many more schools and aspiring leaders through school improvement and leadership training via the Tauheedul College for Teaching and Leadership. Heysham will benefit from a national network of support, resources and opportunities, as we continue to improve educational standards for our students.
As part of the proposal to become an academy, there is a six-week statutory consultation process in which parents, carers, staff, governors and other stakeholders are able to state their views on the proposal to convert to academy status.
The consultation period runs from 7th December, 2017 to 18th January, 2018, and there are a number of ways in which you can contribute.
A consultation event will be held at the school on Monday, 18th December, 5pm – 6pm, where parents, carers and other stakeholders will be able to find out more information, ask questions and express their views.
We have also prepared a consultation document and accompanying questionnaire, which invites your opinion on the academy conversion and TET’s sponsorship. You can download the consultation document here.
When the questionnaire is completed, please return it to: Projects Unit, Tauheedul Education Trust, Shadsworth Road, Blackburn, BB1 2HT or via email to: TET_Projects@tetrust.org
Beyond this formal consultation period, we will continue to work closely with parents, carers and the local community and welcome your on-going feedback.
