Papers published last week from the East of England and North-East London Headteacher Board confirmed that the regional schools commissioner with the support of the board had approved Hintlesham and Chattisham Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School to join the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).

The school will become the 15th school to join the trust, which runs CofE schools across the county.

Bosses at the trust said it would enable the pupils at the establishment to achieve their potential.

John Howard, spokesman for the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese, said: “We very much look forward to welcoming Hintlesham and Chattisham CEVCP School in to the Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust.

Multi-academy trusts are organisations which run two or more academy schools, and aim to use shared resources, collaboration and best practice to improve and maintain standards across all its schools.

Hintlesham and Chattisham is due to join the network on March 1 to become the 15th school under the trust’s management.

Mr Howard added: “The MAT is a strong and growing network of church primary schools in Suffolk.

“Being part of this brings benefits for staff and pupils as we share good practice and work together to provide high quality teaching and learning across our schools.”

The trust celebrated two years of running CofE schools in the county in September 2017, where bosses hailed steady growth and good progress as helping maintain a high quality education when school budgets were under pressure.
