Federation to sponsor new primary academy
A NEW primary academy in the Cheswick Village development east of Filton will be sponsored by the Cabot Learning Federation.
Education Secretary Michael Gove has confirmed that the federation, which includes several east Bristol secondary academies and – from September – four primaries, can develop the school.
It will be built on the former Wallscourt Farm site and is set to open in September next year, with places for up to 60 four-year-olds.
The federation will work closely with the University of the West of England, whose campus adjoins the school site. Eventually the school will offer 420 places for children from the housing development, which is set to include 700 homes.

CLF executive principal David Carter, left, said: "We are delighted to have been given this opportunity and look forward to working with our partners to deliver the new school.
"We will have four primary academies in CLF and this latest addition to the federation is a very welcome development."
Professor Ron Ritchie, Pro-Vice Chancellor of UWE Bristol, said: "This exciting opportunity will enable UWE to engage with its neighbouring community in innovative ways that should have benefits for all involved, young and old."
South Gloucestershire council executive member for children, young people and families Sheila Cook said:
"Cabot Learning Federation has an excellent track record in delivering high quality education and I am sure that, in partnership with UWE, they will make sure the new school is a resounding success."
Construction work on the new Cheswick Village development began in 2007 and it is expected that it will be completed by 2016.
The need for a primary school to serve the new community was confirmed early on in planning the development.
