Joining a MAT is not the answer

The NEU supports our members in many MATs up and down the country – including our school leadership members. However, the irreversible decision to become part of a MAT should be made based on an informed view of the evidence and arguments.

In a recent speech, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson stated that the Government’s vision is for “every school to be part of a family of schools in a strong multi-academy trust”.

There are no new powers to compel schools to join a multi-academy trust (MAT), but governing bodies and school leaders may still be considering this possibility.
