400 primary schools to get academy status

Very usful article received today:

The Cabinet is due to discuss primary education today when it holds a meeting at an academy school in the West Midlands.

‘Time and time again we have seen how academies, with their freedom to innovate, inspire and raise standards, are fuelling aspirations and helping to spread success,’ Mr Cameron will say.

‘So now, we want to go further, faster with 400 more under-performing primary schools paired up with a sponsor and either open or well on their way to becoming an academy by the end of next year.

‘It is simply not good enough that some children are left to struggle in failing schools, when they could be given the chance to shine.’
