Hi everyone Just wanted to know what you think of the new proposal for failing or just satisfactory primaries being turned into academies (non negotiable apparently) and the possible risk to jobs, teacher and t a. Are there any primary academies out there and are they better or worse. One teacher at our school has said that if ours becomes an academy, they will be promptly looking for another job, I think as a matter of principle. Looks like ours in Nottinghamshire could be if we're in the bottom 200, which is very possible. Now the school is implementing an urgent push toward reading and writing ( not very good SATs results being the reason) which they consider critical to stave off impending academy status. Good news?Bad news? Not sure.
