Dear Members of the Rushmere Hall community,
The Governing Body has been considering carefully the future strategy for our school given Government education and school policy and the need to sustain and improve school performance and pupil outcomes in an increasingly challenging educational landscape.
After detailed investigation the Governing Body is proposing that the school convert to academy status and join a proven, successful multi academy trust, the Eko Trust.

Complete the survey
Please complete the survey to tell us your views on academisation. The survey is anonymous but does request an email address for validation reasons. The project manager does not share these with the school and uses this purely to ensure only the Rushmere Community are able to complete the survey.
THE SURVEY WILL BE OPEN ON MONDAY 12TH OCTOBER - THURSDAY 22ND OCTOBER.
A report compiled by the Project Manager is included below. It summarises the consultation process and outcomes from the stakeholder survey.
