    Published 06/09/18

     We are pleased to announce that Melbourne Community Primary School converted to an Academy on 1st September 2018 - joining the Wolds Learning Partnership (WLP) Multi Academy Trust (MAT).

    This is an exciting and positive step forward and means that our school will be work closely with the other schools in the Trust.  The distinct character of our school will be protected and there will be no apparent change in the day to day running of our school. However, being part of the MAT will allow us to work even more effectively and efficiently, to share best practice within and across the schools and to improve outcomes for all of our children.
