Some schools are part of “federations”. There are different kinds of “academies”. There are many other options for the future of Darell.
Of the other local primary schools, most have decided not to hand over control to academies.
Many schools prefer to keep a link to locally elected people. That way, staff and parents can vote in council elections to have a say in how schools are run. (Academies do not answer to local people in this way.)
