    Has anyone got any experience of these ? We are going to a meeting and I was wondering if anyone could give us some information on the reality of how becoming this type of academy works for their school .The ethos sounds right for us . but .....?

    So glad we will not have to do anything we do not want to do re academy status now.Being outstanding hopefully means we can now go our own way.

    What about schools that get a low rating from Ofsted? Is is right they can be forced another way?

    Morgan said that schools with a Good or above rating will not now be forced into becoming an academy, BUT, any school having a lower rating,being in an LEA with a majority of academies, being in an LEA with poor funding etc will still mean you have to go down the academy route by 2022,if the White Paper gets accepted and goes through Parliament.In other words she has thrown a sop to her backbenchers whose constituencies have a large number of high achieving schools and who would have shut her down if she had tried to make their areas subject to this enforced academisation policy. Not a U turn in fact,more a side step for political expediency. Total academisation/privatisation of this country`s education system is still the ultimate aim of Mrs Morgan and her ilk.
