Fewer than 1 in 100 schools affected by ‘levelling-up’ academies plan

Just 155 schools are likely to be affected by a plan to move long-term underperforming schools into multi-academy trusts.

Ministers this week reaffirmed their commitment to consult on moving schools with successive ‘requires improvement’ or ‘inadequate’ ratings into “strong” trusts. The policy will be focused on the Department for Education’s new “education investment areas”.

However, analysis published this week shows just 155 affected schools are not currently in trusts (0.7 per cent).
