Campaigning Essex parents win reprieve from academy takeover

Parents and teachers fighting to stop their primary school being taken out of local authority control and turned into an academy have won a temporary reprieve.

Waltham Holy Cross primary school in Waltham Abbey in Essex was due to be transferred to a multi-academy trust on Monday after failing an Ofsted inspection in March 2018.

Parents and teachers, who have been taking part in a series of strike days in protest against academisation, say they were given the news that the transfer had been postponed while on a picket line at the school on Thursday.
