Primary schools trust set up in area

Three schools in the Daventry district have become part of a multi-academy trust run by the Peterborough Diocese.

The primary schools in Barby, Braunston and Staverton have become part of the Peterborough Diocese Education Trust (PDET) alongside St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School in Kettering.

All four schools joined the Right Rev Bishop John Holbrook, Bishop of Brixworth, and members ofthe education team at a special celebratory service and workshop event held inside Peterborough Cathedral.

Miranda Robinson, the diocesan director of education and PDET’s chief 
executive said: “It was very important that the new trust was launched in the cathedral at an event 
attended by school children.”
