Budget 2016 Plan for further academies
As expected, George Osborne has announced in the Budget today that all schools must become academies by 2020. If they cannot make the deadline, academy orders should be in place so that any remaining schools that have not converted by that date, will have done so by 2022.
Of the 3,381 secondary schools there are currently 2,075 which are academies. On the other hand, the proportion of primary schools that are academies is a lot lower. Only 2,440 out of 16,766 primary schools are currently academies.
We have a lot of practical experience in helping schools to convert and can provide a guiding hand towards making sure the deadlines can be met.
