Opposing academy status

If your local school is proposing to become an academy and you want to oppose this, here are some things you can do:

1. Come to the next meeting of Hands Off Notts Schools at 7pm on Tuesday 27 March at Beeston Library, Foster Avenue, Beeston. We are meeting in the small first floor meeting room. There is disabled access and an induction loop.

2. Send a letter setting out your opposition to the headteacher and chair of governors. Here are some model letters for you to adapt:

3. Start a school-based campaign. Successful campaigns to oppose academies have built an alliance of parents, teachers and in some cases students and others in the local community.  The Birmingham-based Hands Off Our School campaign has done a brilliant job putting together information for other schools.
