Governing Board Announcement

The Governing Board of the Leathersellers' Federation of Schools would like to inform all its stakeholders that it has made an application to the Secretary of State to grant an Academy Order.

If an Academy Order is granted there will follow a period of consultation. Governors will then review the responses to consultation. If Governors decide to proceed, there will then be a full process of TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings, Protection of Employment).

In parallel there is a consultation with regards to the Public Finance Initiative (PFI) status of two of the schools.

It is anticipated this process will take six months. After these consultations the Governing Board will take a decision as to whether or not to proceed to academy conversion.

Christopher Barrow
Chair of Governors
