Academies Accounts Direction

The Education Funding Agency has announced that they are completing the Academies Accounts Direction for the year ended 31 August 2015. This was published in mid June, later than their published schedule.

Failing Schools will be turned into Academies

The government has announced that up to 1,000 schools in England, including all those rated as inadequate by Ofsted (currently 235 schools), will be turned into academies over the next five years. The government will use The Education and Adoption Bill to ‘remove bureaucratic and legal loopholes’ that slow up the process of turning failing schools into academies.
