Dear Mr Arden,

 

Thank you for your email of 22 October 2019 with a Freedom of Information
request for information regarding the re-brokering of The Laurels Primary
School.

 

As requested, please see attached for:

·       Letter of 26/9/19 from the Regional Schools Commissioner for South
East and South London, confirming the decision to transfer The Laurels
Primary School from New Horizons Academy Trust (NHAT) to Durrington Multi
Academy Trust (DMAT)

·       Letter issued by the school, NHAT and DMAT to staff

·       Letter issued by the school, NHAT and DMAT to parents and carers

·       Click below for a link to the school’s Funding Agreement:

Note:  It became clear very early in the relationship between NHAT and The
Laurels Primary School that we did not have a shared set of values which
are so important when setting up a new multi-academy trust. Despite
identifying significant and substantial areas that needed to be rapidly
improved at The Laurels, in order for the school to maintain a ‘Good’
rating at the next Ofsted, the Trust did not have the opportunity to begin
addressing these issues.  Ultimately the decision to re-broker the school
was taken mutually between The Laurels, NHAT, DMAT and the RSC in the best
interest of the children at the school.

Kind regards,

Libby
