As part of the process of opening a new school, Cornwall Education Learning Trust was 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 Secretary of State to set up a free school. We ran a six-week consultation period from 5th October to 16th November 2020. This consultation was an important part of the pre-opening stage both to raise local awareness of our plans for Newquay Primary Academy and to satisfy the legal requirements around setting up a free school.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our consultation questionnaire. The Section 10 Report has been submitted to the Department for Education and can be viewed and downloaded below.
