What this consultation is about
Chellaston Fields Spencer Academy will be opening in September 2019 and is part of our development plan for education in South Derbyshire.
It will cater for the educational needs of the children from the new homes being built in South Derbyshire, particularly Regents Place and will strive to be central to community development.
The academy will be a part of the Spencer Academies Trust and is close to Wyndham Primary which is an outstanding academy within the Trust and also leads on educational development through research across Derby, Derbyshire and beyond.
As a new free school, it is required to carry out a consultation under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010 which covers its plans for the school.
The consultation is aimed at local parents and carers, community and youth groups, local residents, local employees and business owners.
The education brief and admissions information are available on the academy website.
