Just 11% of English Primaries are academies

primary percentagesYou could be forgiven for thinking that every school in the country had by now discovered the benefit of Michael Gove’s advice and rushed to become an academy.

Yet our vigilant Treasurer Jane Eades noticed this in Hansard :

“To ask the Secretary of State for Education what proportion of state-funded primary schools have acquired academy status in each local authority.
• Hansard source (Citation: HC Deb, 19 March 2014, c627W)
Edward Timpson (The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Education; Crewe and Nantwich, Conservative)
A table showing the proportion for each local authority has been placed in the House Library.”
Jane wrote to the House of Commons Information Office and requested the information.
Just 11% of English Primary schools are academies, and primaries make up the vast bulk of schools. Clearly Michael Gove has a long way to go to reach his dream, and he is running out of time.
