Academies Workshop by Winckworth Sherwood
Tue 14 Sep 2010
10.00am - 1.00pm
Minerva House, London Bridge
With the Academies Act 2010 having now received Royal Assent, we expect to see a dramatic increase in the number of maintained schools considering becoming Academies. Schools classed as 'outstanding' following an Ofsted inspection are pre-approved to gain Academy status, but the policy objective is to see all schools converting at some point.
The education team at Winckworth Sherwood understand both the excitement and the concern that many may be feeling at school, governing body, trustee and local authority level arising particularly from the rapid change to policy in this area and its impact. With our experience and expertise, we are well placed to provide all the legal advice and guidance which will be needed.
We have been working with a number of schools converting on 1st September and the best way of dealing with various issues is becoming clear.
Our workshop will analyse the steps you need to go through to become an Academy and give you the opportunity to ask questions, so that you can properly assess whether becoming an Academy is right for your school.
