Welcome to James Rennie School 

Governors have been exploring academy status for nearly three years to see if it would provide opportunities to improve the school. The Governing Body is now proposing that James Rennie School should become an academy within The Eden Academy (which is a multi academy trust that consists only of special schools). Governors are seeking the views of staff, parents, other schools and other stakeholders. Governors are particularly interested to hear why stakeholders hold these views as this will allow them to ensure that all relevant issues are considered.
 By clicking on this link you will find a question and answer document, consultation document and feedback details including an on-line survey.
The consultation closes on 15th June 2018, after which Governors will consider the responses before they make a final decision about whether to become an academy and join The Eden Academy.
