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.
