Following consultation with parents, carers, staff and the diocese, the Governing Body at St Peter’s made the decision to convert to academy status on 1st February 2016. St Peter’s joined with two neighbouring schools – St Andrew’s in Weston and Colwich Primary School – in establishing the Mid-Trent Multi Academy Trust (MAT). The three schools are no longer controlled by the County Council but are accountable, instead, to directors/trustees of the MAT.
The vision statement for the Mid-Trent MAT is as follows:
“Our vision is always to put the children first. We offer an education of the highest quality, underpinned by Christian values, from beginning to end. We are a family of schools which pool together our expertise, resources and joy for learning to give all our children an education fitting them to be members of the wider community, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that lie ahead.”
The Mid-Trent Multi Academy Trust is a private company, limited by guarantee, with charitable status. Registered in England and Wales (Company number: 9878928). Registered office address: Colwich Primary School, Main Road, Colwich, STAFFORD, Staffordshire, ST17 0XD.
