The Governing Body of Nettleham Infants School resolved last night to make an application to the Secretary of State for Education to attain Academy status, giving the school greater operational independence.
“This is an excellent move, it promises a brighter future for parents, staff but most importantly the children at the School.
“We have had to move on this now, we wanted to move at the time of our choosing, not when we are forced to by the local authority or central government.”
A further concern raised by parents was the impact upon pupils feeding into Nettleham C.E. Junior School. However, it was felt that the change to Academy status would have limited impact as the two schools are very different already.
