Westfield Primary School is the latest school to announce that on the 1st October 2018 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 ten primary schools in the Midsomer Norton area as well as the two secondary schools in the town and St Dunstan’s secondary in Glastonbury.
Simon Mills, Headteacher commented “Being part of the trust will enable our staff to work closely with the other schools to share and further develop good practice, which will benefit our pupils and the whole school community. The MNSP will also challenge us further as we strive to provide the very highest quality experiences and outcomes for our children without losing the unique ethos of Westfield School.”
MAT CEO and Executive Headteacher Alun Williams said: “I am extremely pleased that Westfield 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 Westfield 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”.
