Section 10 Consultation is now closed.
The GEMS Learning Trust has run a section 10 consultation in relation to its new free school – GEMS Wantage Primary Academy.
As part of the process of opening a new school, The GEMS Learning Trust is legally required to hold a consultation exercise (under section 10 of the Academies Act 2010) to determine whether the trust should enter into a Funding Agreement with the Department for Education.
This consultation allowed parents/carers and pupils, staff and governors from local schools, other Local Authorities, Councillors, local residents and any other interested parties to learn more about our proposals for the new school and share their views.
The consultation period ran from Friday 27th September 2019 until Friday 8th November.
The report is published below.
Thank you to all those who took the time to respond.
