This is an excerpt from a letter home to parents of children at a local Louth grammar school. It is not one of the ones that we have been campaigning about, but I would like to think that a strong campaign in the town has made a difference to the decision.
The Governing Body, Leadership Team and I have carried out a thorough, and forensic investigation into the financial and philosophical issues surrounding Academy Status that has lasted over six months. We value the degree of independence that Foundation Status gives us but equally value the solid working relationship and support we receive from Lincolnshire County Council. On the evidence currently available King Edward’s will remain as a Foundation School.
