Contact & Communication

We recognise the importance of clear and effective communication with all stakeholders (students, parents/carers, governors, outside agencies, local and national bodies etc), and are committed to being accessible through a range of communication channels.

With this in mind, we have produced the below documentation, in consultation with our Parents’ Forum, to address the ways in which we will ensure effective two-way communication between home and the academy takes place, and the expectations of each method of communication.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
