Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust
On the 1st January 2018, North Tawton Community Primary School and Nursery joined the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust. This followed a period of consultation with the school and local community. The Dartmoor MAT is a newly formed trust is one of the largest ever formed in the South West and is responsible for over 5,000 pupils & students and 750 staff in fifteen school sites. The MAT has been organised in five geographical clusters to ensure that local governance and accountability remain strong- each cluster will retain its own governing board. It is felt likely that additional schools might want to join the MAT in the future and the cluster arrangement will make that possible.
In addition to North Tawton Primary and Foundation Unit the schools involved are: Okehampton College, Tavistock College, Holsworthy Community College, Okehampton Primary School and Foundation Unit, Boasley Cross Community Primary School, Black Torrington Church of England Primary School, Bradford Primary School, Bridestowe Primary School, Bridgerule Church of England Primary School, Chagford Church of England Primary School and Preschool, Exbourne Church of England Primary School, Lydford Primary School, Northlew and Ashbury Parochial Church of England Primary School and South Tawton Primary School and Preschool. Highampton Primary School will join the Trust later this year.
North Tawton will be part of a cluster of schools with South Tawton and Chagford. The three schools will have a single governing board and this, as I write, is being formed. One of their first tasks will be to appoint senior leadership roles at the three schools.
