In the short term, the official answer is that Darell would be under the control of an educational charity, rather than of locally elected people.
In the long term, the “Every Child Every Day Academy Trust” could very easily become part of a private company which would decide how Darell is run and which children and staff are allowed to be at the school.
If Darell hands control of the school to an academy trust, there would be no going back. We would just have to wait and see what was decided for us…
- Who is the governing body trying to transfer Darell to?
- Is there a financial need to hand Darell to an academy?
- Why did the consultation group fall apart?
- Do Darell’s recent results make the case for a takeover by “Every Child Every Day”?
- What do the teachers and support staff think?
- How would Darell change?
- What are the alternatives?
- Would Darell be a local school?
- Does academisation improve pupil progress and attainment?
- How real is the “consultation”?
- What can I do?
