Thoresby Primary School

Academy Consultation

Parents’ Meeting

6.12.11


Why consult l.jpg
Why consult?

  • To gather views from the school community

  • To find out as much as we possibly can

  • To help inform the governors’ decision


What exactly is an academy l.jpg
What exactly is an academy?

  • The school opts out of LA control.

  • Same building

  • Same level of per-pupil funding as they would receive from the local authority as a maintained school

  • Top sliced funding that would go to the LA comes directly into the academy (for the year 2010-11 this would have been £259, 000 additional funding for Thoresby)


What is the difference between a sponsored academy and a converter l.jpg
What is the difference between a sponsored academy and a converter?

  • Sponsored academy programme is for schools considered to be in serious difficulty. This involves outside sponsors running the school. This is an entirely different programme to the one Thoresby governors are considering.

  • Converter academies are those that choose to move away from LA control. Should Thoresby become an academy we would still be a Hull school and maintain the strong links with other Hull schools and the LA


What are the different models l.jpg
What are the different models? converter?

Multi Academy Trust




Or become an individual academy l.jpg
Or become an individual academy converter?

  • Directly accountable to Secretary of State


Slide9 l.jpg

In each model there is a written agreement between the governing trust and the Secretary of State.

Thoresby is graded as a ‘good’ school and has an upward trend of pupil attainment and exceeds national averages. Therefore all of the models can be considered.


What stays the same l.jpg
What stays the same? governing trust and the Secretary of State.

  • The identity, ethos and vision of the school

  • Admissions, SEN and exclusions (schools will not be allowed to select if they do not already do so)

  • Collaboration with the community and other schools (including supporting schools in difficulty)

  • Academies are still subject to OFSTED inspections and have to do SATs


What is different l.jpg
What is different? governing trust and the Secretary of State.

  • Academies have the freedom to allocate the top sliced amount of funding as they wish

  • Academies have their buildings and assets signed over to them under a 125 year lease agreement

  • There are greater freedoms around the delivery of the curriculum, the school day, the school name and holidays. Changes would only occur if stakeholders (pupils, staff, parents etc.) decided they wanted changes

  • The ability to set their own pay and conditions for staff (current staff convert on national pay and conditions called TUPE)

  • Any questions? governing trust and the Secretary of State.
