Conversion to an Academy Update:
In January, following a long process and period of consultation, the Governing Body of Brook Field took the decision to change the status of Brook Field from, a school within the Local Authority, to one within a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). The Blue Kite Multi-Academy Trust remains the preferred MAT to join based on its vision and ethos.
A submission of interest and a formal application to the DFE has been submitted by the school and we currently await the go-ahead to begin formal due-diligence and legal proceedings. Whilst we do not anticipate any problems with our conversion to academy status, the whole process can be quite long and we will make sure to keep you fully informed of any future progress or timescales being worked towards. Thank you.
