Midsomer Norton Primary School is pleased to announce that on the 1st September 2017 the School converted to Academy status and simultaneously joined the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership Multi Academy Trust (MAT).
Approved by the Secretary of State for Education, this conversion will allow the School to have more control over its day to day operations within the support network offered by the MNSP MAT which now operates eight primary schools in the Midsomer Norton area as well as the two secondary schools in the town and St Dunstan’s secondary in Glastonbury.
Alun Randell, Headteacher commented “We are very excited to join the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership Multi Academy Trust – a family of schools with which we already work very closely. The expertise and support available within the Trust will enable all those working in our school community to continue to achieve their very best. Midsomer Norton Primary is already highly regarded for its varied and exciting curriculum, along with the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities available. This along with our continued focus on exceptional teaching and learning and now the added support of the MNSP, can only further enhance outcomes for all our children and families.”
MAT CEO and Executive Headteacher Alun Williams said: “I am delighted that Midsomer Norton Primary has decided to join the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership. We have always worked closely with the school and can now extend this collaboration to support opportunities for all in the Midsomer Norton Primary School community. I really look forward to working with the staff and children at the school, as do all those colleagues and children who are already part of the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership”.
