Harris Academy Project Board

This afternoon, I took part in the latest meeting of the Harris Academy Project Board, the board charged with overseeing the new Harris Academy construction project and associated matters including the decant arrangements to Rockwell that takes place from this August.   The board is chaired by the City Council's Chief Executive.

We had a very productive and positive meeting today.  The main issue discussed was the school transport arrangements for pupils during the decant.   The principle of this was agreed today and parents and carers will now be contacted regarding the proposed arrangements and also sent a survey form to allow their feedback.

We also had updates on other aspects of the project, including progress with the actual decant itself.    In terms of keeping parents, pupils and the community as a whole updated on the project and other Harris Academy activities, the new school website is due to launch tomorrow.
