Is your school on the list? 27% of Birmingham Primaries converted or in the process of converting to academy

The following was published as part of the previous post about the parent victory at West Heath Primary, but it deserves its own post, so here it is again with a bit of added detail;

 

A recent Local Authority Fortnightly Academy Summary Sheet shows that 63 Primary Schools are in the process of converting. With the 19 that have already converted this represents a total of 27% of Primary Schools in Birmingham. The vast majority of these are being forced to convert and will have been acting in total secrecy from parents and the community. Only the DfE and the Local Authority know in advance which schools are being targeted for forced academy conversion, but this information is deemed confidential until the deal has been done. 34 schools in the process of converting are named, but 29 schools are unnamed because they are still negotiating with sponsors and the DfE. This is explained in the documents as follows;

There is a list of other Primary schools that may go forward for conversion in the near future but these are still comfidential.  The number of schools has still been included to give the full picture of the number of schools involved.

As the forced academy process nears completion schools lift the veil of secrecy and make announcements to parents. A recent example is Mansfield Green Primary, but a flood of similar announcements can be expected over the coming weeks.

If the new administration in Birmingham is serious about its new offer to schools, then it must act now to protect these 63 school communities. It is not too late to save them – they are not academies until the funding agreement is signed. Each school represents hundreds of real lives, real people, parents and children – citizens of Birmingham whose rights have been ignored, who have been denied a stake in their own futures, whose fate has been decided for them behind closed doors. They must not be written off.
