Academy Consultation

Proposed Conversion to Academy Status

After careful consideration, the Governing Body of Kestrels’ Field Primary School, in consultation with the Headteacher and leadership team, has agreed to apply to become an academy under the Academies Act 2010 and is proposing to join The Mead Educational Trust (TMET). We are now communicating about our school’s plans to convert to an academy with anyone who might have an interest, including parents and carers, pupils and staff.


The consultation runs from Tuesday 8th January to Friday 22nd February 2019. During this time, we will hold meetings, answer questions and receive written views.


More information about this proposal and the consultation timeline is provided in the documents below.


If you have any questions or comments they can be made in writing to Cathy Brown, The Mead Centre, 343 Gipsy Lane, Leicester LE4 9DD or by email to


The closing date for representations to be made is 5pm 22nd February 2019.
