Castle Vale School governors agree academy plan


The governors and Headteacher of Castle Vale School agreed at a meeting last Thursday to seek academy status for the school. They have invited the Essex-based Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) to take the lead in this move. David Trigg, AET’s Chief Executive, was present at the meeting.
AET currently supervise the work of 19 academies, mainly in the south east of the country. They expect to increase their portfolio considerably in the coming months.
Castle Vale School now has to go through a consultation procedure before becoming an academy, in September 2012.
