Establishing an Academy Trust Structure for the Schools of the Diocese of Salisbury
We have set out a policy of the guiding principles for the Diocesan Board of Education’s response to the Government’s drive towards Academy Status. We are committed to empowering professionals, sustaining the family of Church schools and working cooperatively and collaboratively whilst putting children at the heart of all we do.
The Primary Chains Grant has been extended until March 2014.

We trust this information will be of use to you in the coming months, as you consider your schools' repsonse to the Academies Act 2010, and would urge you to contact us at the earliest opportunity if you haven't already done so, should your school wish actively to consider academy status.

We have drafted a 'Roles and Responsibilities for Trustees' with application form. Please download from the grey box on the left.
