NUT members at Kingsthorpe College,Northampton will be striking on Wednesday 23rd May against the proposal to transfer their employment to the Collaborative Academies Trust , the ‘non profit’ arm of Edison Learning.
Kingsthorpe College is currently in a satisfactory OFSTED category.
Staff at KC have been briefed about this proposal but in no sense have they been consulted or their views sought about the change. The Governors and Leadership Team have taken the decision to apply for Academy status.
Once they do so and start the ‘formal consultation’ in all of the schools which have transferred so far there has been no going back however strongly staff are against the transfer.
Unfortunately without the threat of a strike it would appear that our members will be forced to transfer to this new employer with links to Edison.
