Sponsored academies Q&A now available.


The NGA has produced a Q&A document answering common questions governors have about converting to a sponsored academy. The Department for Education’s (DfE) policy is clear that schools which are deemed not to be performing well should convert to academy status under the guidance of a sponsor. Governing bodies need to be clear about the circumstances in which conversion may be proposed and what options are available if it is.

This is the first version of the Q&A; we will be updating it in the future, so any further questions can be emailed to us for inclusion.
