DfE: School improvement has ‘arrested or reversed’ in some sponsored academies

Converting schools to sponsored academies does not consistently cause pupil performance to get better – with school improvement actually being “arrested or reversed” in some cases, government research has found.

An ad-hoc statistics release published by the Department for Education this morning found there is “substantial variation in performance and there are some schools with results well below national average performance” – even in schools which have been academies for more than seven years.

In some groups the report found there is “evidence to suggest year-on-year improvement has arrested or been reversed”.
