ATC News Update 22.01.2021

The mornings and nights are starting to become lighter and signs of spring are starting to appear. Across the Trust we are working on a digital strategy to develop a common educational platform to enable collaboration.  Implementation for our digital strategy should start in September, with development and consultation over the next few months.   

 

We would like to welcome Julie Baldwin, the new Operations Manager, who has started her post over at Thames Primary Academy this week. We wish her well in her new role. 

 

We currently have a vacancy for a Trust IT Technician. If you know anyone that maybe interested, please forward the link below:

The closing date for the post will be Monday 8th February.

 

ICT have been working hard and managed to distribute over 70 Google Chromebooks to Thames Primary Academy. Students and staff having access to Chromebooks has been a massive benefit in helping the education of the students.  Also the team have been looking at a rolling programme of replacing classroom screens at Roseacre Primary Academy.

 

Finally, congratulations to John Tarbox, Deputy CEO.  John returned to AtC full time in January following his secondment as Executive Headteacher at Rhyddings High School.  At Easter John joins The Pennine Trust based in Nelson, Lancashire as CEO.  We look forward to working in partnership with John and Pennine Trust schools in the future.
