Academy Consideration

What is an academy?

Academies are independent, state-funded schools, which receive their funding directly from central government, rather than through a local authority. Although the day-to-day running of the school remains with the Headteacher or principal, they are overseen by individual charitable bodies called academy trusts and may be part of an academy chain. These trusts provide advice, support and expertise. They have more freedom than other state schools over their finances and curriculum, and do not need to follow national pay and conditions for teachers.

Our School

At Mangotsfield, we are currently exploring the option of becoming an academy. The Governors have carried out their own extensive research to ensure they have all of the information they need to help inform a decision best for the school. At the time of writing, all stakeholders see the formation of a locally based Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) as an opportunity to better control our future and secure the long term direction of our school for the benefit of our children and the wider community.
