We just wanted to provide you with an update on our conversion to academy status under the Wimborne Academy Trust. The due diligence process has now been completed between both parties and the formal transfer procedures are well underway with our planned conversion date being 1st January 2019.
Hillside First School have also taken the decision to join the Wimborne Academy Trust and will, if things go according to plan, convert on the same date. These decisions have been made to positively support Verwood Schools moving forward.
We do not believe that you will see any change at Verwood CE First School and Nursery in the short term, as we aim to uphold our ethos and values. This is obviously a very different process for us than it was for EMS, and we look forward to a great learning partnership.
If however you do have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Head Teacher, Mr Adam Parsons.
