Lawrence Sheriff School sponsors new primary schoolLawrence Sheriff School is celebrating the news that it has been named as sponsor of the new primary school on the Rugby Gateway site. The primary will be part of a major new housing development in the area towards the M6 motorway.
LSS Headteacher Peter Kent explained ‘The new school will have its own headteacher and governing body, but we will play a central role in appointing staff, establishing the ethos of the institution and overseeing its future direction. It will not be a designated feeder school and students who attend will have the same chance to progress on to LSS as students at every other primary. We are sharing values, not a short cut to Sheriff’.
‘It is important that the development of education within the town is led by schools themselves - an idea that is central to the government’s Education White Paper. We are excited to be able to play our part in responding to the success and growth of the town.’
The new primary school is planned to open in September 2018.
