Copland School to Strike against Academy status

A troubled school in Wembley which was slammed in a recent Ofsted report has been earmarked for academy conversion.

The Times understands that Copland Community School was told by the Department for Education (DfE) yesterday (Tues) that it will have to adopt the government’s controversial status which places schools with sponsors and revokes control from the local authority.

In response, teachers will stage a mass walkout on Thursday, May 23 to protest against the plans.

Copland is currently the only secondary school in the borough which remains under local authority and Hank Roberts, national president for Association for Teachers and Lecturers said they were determined to fight against the plans.
