Stamford Primary school joins the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust Posted On 08 January 2021

 

School community looks forward to reaping the benefits of joining the academy.

 

The Bluecoat School on Green Lane, Stamford, has become the first primary school in Stamford to become part of the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) and staff and governors hope the move will present new opportunities for the school to thrive.

 

CMAT was formed in 2011 with a clear vision and desire to provide high quality and dynamic education for everyone. It is a multi-academy trust that has sponsored numerous academies and help spread good education practice. Their academies share common values and core operational systems which are adapted to individual context and needs in their academies.

 

Interim head-teacher Ben Bloor said, “The Bluecoat School is really pleased to be joining the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust. We believe that becoming part of the CMAT family will open many doors for the school and enable us to continue to develop.

 

“Being part of a trust that has a number of primary schools is crucial in enabling us to continue to strengthen. We are really excited about the school’s future.”

 

Stamford Welland Academy is part of the same trust, which runs 16 schools in Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire. It is hoped that by the time the school reopens after lockdown the benefits will start to be seen quickly.

 

School governor Jill Haigh finished by saying, “The decision to join with CMAT has at its core the needs of our pupils, staff and school community.

 

“The decision to join with CMAT has at its core the needs of our pupils, staff and school community.

 

“We have already been able to benefit from the support of the CMAT senior leadership team as we integrated in to the trust, and this helped the school to adapt to the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
