Academy Status

At this point in time (January 2012), after first rejecting the idea, the school arfe now consulting on converting to Academy status. We cannot comment on the impact on the schoolm as we have yet to see their rationale, but it will have a huge impact on Lambeth's ability to maintain its service level as it now stands, given the transfer of funds as a result of large schools in aprticualr converting.
We shall of course attempt to persuade them that it's not a great idea, as other conversions have found out when unexpected bills arrive on their doorstep.
During 2009 we surveyed schools to find out how teachers were finding things, especially as the government's aim was to 'reduce workload'
Some schools are very positive, but it is important that teachers are aware from other schools how it works elsewhere.
For example, there is no need for there to be more than one sixty minutre management organised meeting per week. Schools try to suggest that this is impossible. But it is not impossible and happens in some locations
The information that follows explains this particualar school. Please contact us if things have changed or if there are any concerns to raise.
