Parents protest about East Cambridgeshire school’s proposal to become part of an academy trust

An East Cambridgeshire school that could become an academy has caused outrage among parents who claim they were “appalled” to not be told about the move before.

Swaffham Prior CofE alerted parents of their proposal to become part of a multi-academy trust (MAT) earlier this week.

However, parents claim that the community were told nothing about the decision prior to the announcement.

A multi-academy trust is where a group of schools is governed through a single set of members and directors.

Yesterday (May 17) saw a protest held outside of the Station Road school – with a petition already gaining signatures from around 35 families.
