Before the election we, as a Governing Body (Community Primary of 420 children), were seriously looking at academisation either by joining an already established MAT or coming together as a group of schools locally to establish a new MAT, subject to acceptance of the idea by the RSC. Since the election everything has gone very quiet on this front nationally and we're now wondering what to do. We have a CEO of a two school MAT coming to talk to us soon and we've already had a presentation to form a new MAT and, of course, there is the option to do nothing. This last option we wouldn't have considered before the election but, in view of the quietness of everything, it's back on the table. Any thoughts from Governors in a similar situation? Ofsted was 2.5 years ago and we were rated as good.
