Academy schools need not apply

ANY school in Camden that might be beginning to think about switching direction in these straightened times and reaching for the academy button have been sent a subtle little warning from the council. Ann Baxter, director of the children, schools and families department at the Town Hall, last week wrote to all heads and governors about money, funding, broken buildings and so on. The email I’ve seen includes the above appendix: ‘Camden capital funding is not intended for academies’… translated in more than one place as: If you break away from the council, don’t come crying to us if the roof is still bust in ten years time.
