Portishead school seeks academy status

A Portishead primary school has pushed back plans to become an academy because of ‘unavoidable delays’ over paperwork.
Trinity Primary School wanted to convert to an academy on Friday and join the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust but has pushed the move back until the start of February because of the issues.
North Somerset Council is set to transfer the land it owns at the site in Marjoram Way to the trust.
In return, the trust will sign a 125-year lease and pay a peppercorn rate.
However the paperwork has taken longer than the school expected.

In a letter to parents, the school said it was ‘looking forward to the conversion’ but had needed to push back the date because of ‘unavoidable delays to legal documentation’.
North Somerset Council included a condition in the original transfer of the building to the Diocese of Bath and Wells that the community hall would be open to the public outside of school hours.
