MAT Consultation News
Dereham Neatherd High School held a consultation on the formation of a Multi Academy Trust between 28th November 2016 and 11th January 2017, and is grateful to all those who took the trouble to respond.
We received 10 written responses, and 8 stakeholders attended a public meeting on 5th January 2017. The majority of the responses were regarding the formation of a Neatherd Sixth Form; that is a separate matter which would be the subject of an additional consultation before it could go ahead.
Having considered all the issues raised in the responses, governors felt there were no issues which materially affected the decision to proceed to a MAT and voted at the Full Governing Body meeting on 17th January 2017 to continue with that process. The whole community (students, parents/carers, staff and governors/trustees) can now look forward to an exciting and successful future in which achievement of the best possible outcomes for young people is the most important objective.
