The history of Academies ‘fixing’ schools is not very impressive.
Of the 74 Academies entering pupils for 2 or more years of GCSE’s In 2009, 32% saw their results fall, this is a larger proportion than in the maintained sector.
Does Michael Gove really think that taking Primary Schools out of the direction of Local Authorities, and placing them in the hands of other schools, is what they need? Or is he creating chains of Academies ripe for Edu-business to pick?
We are receiving many calls and emails from Primary Schools concerned about Gove’s plans. If you would like us to send a speaker to meet your Headteacher / Governors / Staff / Parents please email email@example.com or call 07528 201 697
