Queen Margret Primary Academy joins the CLF

A two-day festival of dance, music and art has been held to mark Queen Margaret Primary Academy’s move to join the Cabot Learning Federation.

The Tewkesbury primary school celebrated its new era of collaboration and growth with dance and samba workshops for students, and the unveiling of a stunning mosaic commemorating the occasion.

The decision to join the CLF – a trust with a strong track record of school improvement across the South West – followed an extensive due diligence process by both the school and trust leaders to ensure a close values match and shared ambitions.

CLF CEO Steve Taylor and Education Director Susie Weaver joined Queen Margaret Headteacher Sara Bennion and other colleagues to witness the unveiling of the new mosaic. They then toured the academy and spoke to pupils and staff to answer key questions about the CLF.

School and trust leaders spoke of the significance of the move and the benefits it will bring for colleagues and students.

Headteacher Sara Bennion said: “Today marks a significant event in Queen Margaret primary School’s 68-year history as we transferred over to join the CLF family and become Queen Margaret Primary Academy.

“We have made sure that we have marked the event, by each child taking part in an international dance workshop or a samba drumming workshop, as well as the unveiling of a large mosaic at the front of school.

“We really feel that it has been a celebration and one that all members of our team enjoyed. We are so looking forward to the next part of our journey as a part of the CLF family.”

Queen Margaret was one of four schools joining the CLF this week, with three Bristol primaries making the same move. This brings the total number of schools in the trust to 35, all located in the South West between Tewkesbury and Taunton.

CLF Education Director Susie Weaver said: “It was a real privilege to meet Headteachers and their teams, meet with children, pupil leaders and have time to start to make and develop relationships with a range of people.

“My thanks go to you all for all the efforts made to make the visits such a success and for all the planned next steps too, over the coming weeks and months. It is really good to welcome you into our family of schools.”
