BRAND NEW PETITION - To cease the transfer of WHXPS to NET Academy Trust

For the attention of Jo Coton (CEO), Richard Carr (Director) and the trustees of NETAT

We, the undersigned members of the Waltham Holy Cross Primary School community are dismayed and concerned that NET Academy trust, which is under investigation by the Department for Education, can still consider itself an appropriate sponsor for our school.

As major stakeholders we were shocked to read in the recent Guardian newspaper article (18th September 2019) that “two sets of OFSTED-employed inspectors had visited the primary and found evidence that NET’s English teaching was tantamount to cheating, staff say”.

We are not happy that any organization facing such damaging allegations should be responsible for our children and therefore we demand that NET Academy trust withdraw their sponsorship immediately.
