News and Support from The NASUWT
The invitation for every school to become an academy flies in the face of public opinion. An Ipsos-MORI poll found that 96 per cent of parents want a good local school run by local councils, and by a ratio of 9 to 1, the public is opposed to head teachers being given more freedom.
There are resources on The NASUWT National website to support you if your school is threatened by the academy conversion process.
Your Local or Regional NASUWT Representatives can also offer support.
