Armley Primary School has moved a step closer to becoming an academy this week after education chiefs approved an official transfer date.

A council report said a Commercial Transfer Agreement between Leeds City Council, the Governing Body of Armley Primary School and the Owlcotes Multi Academy Trust should be completed to enable the school to open as an academy on 1st December 2019

Owlcotes Multi Academy Trust currently runs three schools in West Leeds, including Pudsey Waterloo, Pudsey Primrose Hill and Calverley Parkside.

The report concludes:

“Under the circumstances, negotiations have progressed well and have been concluded – furthermore the relationship with Owlcotes Multi Academy Trust and their advisors continues to be positive.”

In May, the school received an ‘inadequate’ Ofsted report, with inspectors saying the quality of education pupils receive had ‘deteriorated significantly’ since the last Ofsted inspection in 2014.

They added:

“Although urgent remedial work has started recently, the school’s overall effectiveness is inadequate.”
