Consultation on Academy Conversion

Following the school's OFSTED judgement in January of this year the Regional School Commissioner has made a decision that Swadelands School should convert to become an academy. You will be aware that the Valley Invicta Academies Trust (VIAT) has been working with the school since April on securing rapid improvement.

The Governing Body is required to consult with stakeholders as part of the process. The consultation form is available online at The consultation will end on 5 November 2016.

Please see the linked 'Frequently Asked Questions' regarding this issue.

Finally, senior staff at the school will be available to answer any questions you may have on Tuesday 1 November between 6.30 and 8.00pm in the main hall.
