Frequently Asked Questions

The vision for Tregolls School – an Academy is one of high expectations and inspirational leadership, leading to improved educational achievements and enhanced opportunities for your children.

The sponsor will ensure that your Academy will play a full part in local initiatives to improve life chances for children, serving the needs identified by the community.

Your Academy will be dedicated to developing children’s individual aptitudes and interests through:

  • the provision of a broad and innovative curriculum – accessible to children of all aptitudes and abilities.
  • a wide range of focused and inspiring teaching techniques.
  • high quality provision and support for children with special educational needs.
The principle of academies’ funding is that academies should receive the same level of per-pupil funding as they would receive from the local authority (LA) as a maintained school. They also receive funding to meet their additional responsibilities that are no longer provided for them by the LA.

The Government is clear that becoming an academy should not bring about a financial advantage or disadvantage to a school. However, academies have greater freedom over how they use their budgets, alongside the other freedoms that they enjoy.
