On the 31st January, over 150 governors, staff, parents, prospective parents, teaching union representatives, councillors and other community members braved the wet weather to gather at The West Midlands Transport Club and find out more about the proposed Multi-Academy Trust. The panel of speakers included Sarah Barton of Ask Parents First, local councillor Lisa Trickett and Anne Brimacombe, General Secretary of NASUWT in Birmingham. The schools were invited to send a representative but sadly they declined.
It was a fantastic evening, with lots of information shared and many questions asked (and answered).
It ended with a show of hands and there were also beads in a jar to show how people felt about the proposal. If you’d like to find out more, please read the notes.
