On 1st November 2014 Dovedale Primary School officially converted to an academy and is now part of Willows Academy Trust in partnership with Sawley Junior School, Sawley Infant & Nursery School and Shardlow Primary School.
The Board of Trustees have worked hard to coordinate the transfer from Derbyshire County Council to Willows Academy Trust and we are pleased to announce this official conversion date. We are no longer a Derbyshire County Council School and as such we will receive our funding direct from the Education Funding Agency. The day to day running of the school will continue to remain the same for our pupils and as a Multi Academy Trust we are developing our strategic vision under the motto ‘Aspire Achieve Thrive’.
