Lord Agnew (Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System) issued a letter to Directors of Children’s Services requesting that it is shared with state schools. Read the ‘Guidance for schools on leaving the EU’ letter online.

Conversion to academy status


Governing bodies and headteachers are reminded to inform the local authority when considering conversion to academy status and joining a multi-academy trust. The local authority is one of the stakeholders and should therefore be included in the consultation process.

Furthermore, the process of conversion has implications for the work of a number of areas on the LA including property, payroll, finance, HR, pensions and legal services. Early notification will help the LA to support the conversion process.
