Dear Parents and Carers,

Please find below a letter from Josh Coleman, the C.E.O. of the Multi Academy Trust to which Shepherdswell has belonged for some six years now. As you will see in Mr. Coleman’s letter, today is an important milestone in the evolution of the trust, which from today will be known as the East Midlands Academy Trust (previously EMLC).



This change has no practical impact on life at Shepherdswell other than the fact that over time you will begin to see the East Midlands Academy Trust (EMAT) logo replacing the EMLC one. Our uniform will, of course, remain the same.


Mr. Coleman’s letter features a page of ‘frequently asked questions’ but if you have another that isn’t featured, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
