Section 10 Consultation

Our Consultation is now closed.  Many thanks to everyone who contributed.  A copy of the report will be available here in January.

As part of the process of opening a Free School, the Department for Education requires a consultation under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010.  This enables local residents, headteachers, staff and governors from local schools, parents, elected members, community groups, local nurseries and any other interested parties to share their views.


This is an important step in our journey to opening in September 2020.  We would like to hear from the community in the coming weeks to help inform the Secretary of State for Education’s decision on whether to enter into a Funding Agreement with The Primary First Trust.  The Funding Agreement will enable us to make unconditional offers for school places.  We want to listen to your comments and act on any feedback to ensure our School is the best it can be and meets the needs of the community we serve.  

There are a number of ways in which you can give us your feedback:
