Stour Vale Academy Trust
I am delighted to be able to write to you to inform you that the legal process of academy conversion for Northfield Road is now complete and to welcome the children and families of Northfield Road Primary School to Stour Vale Academy Trust.
As you know, we began working alongside the leadership team at Northfield Road several months ago when the Regional Schools Commissioner identified Stour Vale as the sponsoring Trust for Northfield Road. It has been a great privilege to get to know the children and staff of Northfield Road and see first-hand the progress that the whole school has made this year supported by Mrs Brass as Executive Headteacher. Thanks to strong partnership work between the local authority, Mrs Brass, the school staff and the Trust, along with a shared commitment to putting the children at the heart of every decision, Northfield Road is now well-positioned to build on existing strengths and recent changes and continue its journey of improvement next year.
