timescale for academies

timescale for academies

From Carole:

Our governing body has said that all schools must become academies by 2015 and won’t have a choice. Is this true?

    This is not true at all. The Secretary of State has expressed his wish that all schools will be academies but it is not policy and cannot be enforced unless all schools went into an OFSTED category and were then forced to become academies. Talk like this is designed to create a stampede effect. Your governing body needs to make itself aware of the facts. We are always happy to speak to governors meetings to explain the situation.
