Fairfield Primary School in Stapleford will consult on academy status in January 2013

Fairfield Primary School in Stapleford will hold its first formal parental consultation meeting about academy status on 16 January 2013 at 5.00p.m. in school hall.
In June 2012 the Governors at the school made an expression of interest to become an Academy. The school has told parents that this is now something that it is fully investigating as an option for Fairfield for September 2013.

By July 2012, primary academy converters made up only 3% of all state funded primary schools.

  1. This looks like a very odd thing for anyone to want to do at this moment in time. The current ruling (Conservative) councillors at County Hall may be keen on academies, but they will hopefully lose control in at the local election in May.

    The benefits of remaining with the local authority should be well understood by the Headteacher and the Governing Body at Fairfield. What advantage do they think the school will gain leap into the unknown like this? It’s a very bad idea at exactly the wrong time!
