    “The aim of the Trust was to help children achieve more, providing the best education possible for all the children and young people in the communities served by the Trust by working together more effectively,as well as promoting community cohesion. Michael Hoomanawanui

  • “For Beeston Primary School, being part of the Trust has not resulted in the achievement of all these aims therefore the Governing Body has, after lengthy discussions, considered what impact being a member of a Trust has had on the outcomes for children in our School and consider that these outcomes will improve by leaving the Trust.”

    The document goes on to say that the advantages of leaving would be a clearer focus on the needs of pupils in the school, greater control of resources and better use of management time. 2017 asics pas cher

    1. Henry Purcell says:

      This seems to be an extraordinarily short sighted decision by Beeston governors. Most of the pupils at Beeston primary go, as the article states, to Cockburn School, which is incredibly oversubscribed. It stands to reason that in future years Cockburn will prioritise the pupils of those schools that are still in the Trust, probably meaning that Beeston children will have to attend different schools in the area, most of which are mediocre to say the least. Not to mention the fact that Cockburn has already taken over South Leeds, is building a free school etc and all of this activity and improvement will be taking place within the Trust – but without Beeston. Pure studidty!!

      I would like to inform Mr.Purcell that this partnership has been in place since 2010.I must congratulate the governors who are supporting their headteacher to prioritise the needs of children first.As we are aware that Cockburn are empire building and the partnership has always been one -sided.

      Education is too important to stay in an unequal partnership .Beeston Primary has always been child centred and this will give children the resilience/empathy/independence skills to become more able adults.They will also be able to stand up to large organisations who have a different view on Education
