Welcome to the Great North Wood Education Trust.
We are creating a bespoke website for the Trust, but until that is ready, key information will be hosted on The Elmgreen School Website, on the Great North Wood Trust page.

The information contained in these pages will be amended and updated as policies and procedures are agreed by the Trust Board.

letter that was sent home to all Rosendale and Elmgreen parents and carers on Friday 28 April 2017.
On Tuesday 20 September 2016 the Rosendale Governing Body voted in favour of converting to an academy and forming a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) with Elmgreen School. Once the due diligence was completed the Rosendale governors voted in favour of the conversion by a clear majority.
On the 21 September 2016 the governing body of The Elmgreen School, after considering the responses to the consultation, voted unanimously to convert to academy status and form a Multi Academy Trust with Rosendale Primary School. The governors at Rosendale Primary School have also voted to proceed with the formation of a Multi Academy Trust with The Elmgreen School.
Following on from those decisions a Steering Group has been formed with representatives of both governing bodies and the Parent Promoters Foundation. This group will make key decisions about ethos, the members and trustees.
