Academy Conversion

The Staff and Governors of Kirkby la Thorpe Primary School are delighted to announce that, after a recent, rigorous examination of our first-rate educational performance, the Department of Education has granted our school Academy status. The change came into effect on 1st December and means that we will be joining Sir William Alvey, Our Lady of Good Counsel and Rauceby primary schools as Academies that serve the Sleaford area.  This is an extremely exciting development for us, as it will provide the leadership team with even more scope to plan and influence how the school develops, grows and improves its strategic direction in order to provide the best possible care and education for our pupils. We have an exceptional opportunity to build further upon our most recent OFSTED inspection in 2012 that concluded we are a “Good” school with “outstanding features”.
 
In common with all Academies, the school will now receive its funding directly from the Department of Education rather than from Lincolnshire Education Authority, allowing the Governors and Head Teacher more control over how the school is run on a day to day basis. For significant improvements to facilities on site, it will be possible to apply directly to the Department of Education for capital grants. It must be stressed that in becoming an Academy our school will remain true to the ethos and values that endear it to both pupils, parents and carers alike. However, we will strive also to be a village school with a difference.  Progressive and forward thinking in our outlook, we are proud of our standing as an Eco School and have, since this summer, generated our own electricity from solar panels. Further, we have recently obtained a number of awards in recognition of our achievements, most notably the Gold Artmark Award.
