We are delighted to confirm that the conversion process of Warberry Church of England Foundation Primary School to become an academy and to join the Learning Academy Partnership Trust took place during the summer holidays. This means that Warberry now has new legal status from 1 September as an academy within the overarching Learning Academy Partnership Trust.
As Executive Headteacher, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you as part of The Learning Academy Partnership (LAP) family of academies. Our family of schools include: All Saints Marsh C of E Academy, All Saints Teaching School Alliance, Ellacombe Academy, Ilsham C of E Academy and Little Stars Childcare Centre.
This new school year will herald the beginning of a new chapter in the next stage of Warberry’s journey to excellence. We aim to continue to build upon recent successes and I am very much looking forward to working with the Warberry community; leading the Trust…Collectively Empowering Excellence for the benefit of all of our children and communities.
The LAP Trust is governed by a single board of directors and myself as Chief Executive Officer. We have overall accountability for the success of our family of schools. We are supported in that role, at a local level by heads of each academy and a local Ethos and Communications Group (previously governors). My role as Executive Headteacher is to oversee, support and challenge the work of the Trust and each academy, ensuring that your child receives an outstanding education
In July we were very pleased to share with you the appointment of two substantive Heads of Academy at Warberry: Miss Ryan and Miss Cleverly. Miss Ryan and Miss Cleverly support the aims and work of the Trust, leading Warberry and having overall responsibility for the day to day running of the school. My role as Executive Headteacher is to oversee, support and challenge the work of the Trust and each academy, ensuring that your child receives an outstanding education. I am very much looking forward to meeting you over the coming year.
We also welcome to Warberry a number of staff that have leadership roles across the Trust and will be based at Warberry in order to support its journey to outstanding; these include:
