The Governing Body has decided that the school should become an academy and join the LEO Academy Trust. 

Following careful consideration the Governing Body concluded that collaborating as a partner, alongside Cheam Park Farm Primary Academy, Cheam Fields Academy, Brookfield Academy and Cheam Common PrimaryAcademy, in the LEO Academy Trust would be the best way to provide further opportunities for the school's pupils and staff. As part of the Trust, we will share the high level of knowledge and skills of Cheam Fields staff and benefit from improved professional development and training.

 You will find a link on the LEO website if you would like more details and information about the LEO Academy Trust, which can also be accessed directly via:

 Your views on this matter are important to the governors and leadership team of the school. Please send any comments in writing to the Chair of Governors via the school office at the above address, marking the envelope ‘Academy Consultation’. Alternatively email

 Please let us know your views by the end of the Summer Term – 19th July 2017.

 If the proposals proceed to plan and the necessary formal arrangements are agreed between the school, the LEO Academy Trust and the Department for Education, the Governing Body hopes that Manor Park will become an academy and join the LEO Academy Trust on 1st November 2017.
