Academy delay

It is with a great deal of frustration that I must inform parents that we have had to postpone our conversion to Academy Status due to a last minute delay in legal paperwork from the Local Authority.  We had been assured that everything was in place but it seems a document relating to one aspect of the land registry was overlooked by the Local Authority. Unfortunately, this can only be completed by the LA and our solicitor has advised against going ahead until this is resolved as there could be financial implications for the school without it.  We will now convert on the 1st February.  Whilst this delay is very annoying on the part of the school, who have worked very hard to meet our deadlines, please be assured it will not affect the day to day running of the school.   

NB Parents should still make any cheques payable to Marlborough Primary School as this account is now set up.
