Whether you agree with them or not, the likelihood is that academies are here to stay and, as more and more primary schools are looking into whether they could benefit from converting, there has become a need for an impartial guide.

Whether you agree with them or not, the likelihood is that academies are here to stay and, as more and more primary schools are looking into whether they could benefit from converting, there has become a need for an impartial guide.



That's why Andrew Carter, who is headteacher of an outstanding primary academy himself, has created a brand new “how-to guide" on becoming an academy to help other primary schools decide if it is right for them – and if so, how best to go about it.



Andrew successfully steered his school, South Farnham, through the academy conversion process in 2011 and shares his valuable insights in the dos and don'ts within this publication.



There is lots of information out there on academies, but it is not in one place. This guide pulls together everything you need to know about academies and the step-by-step instructions take you through the entire process. It is very straightforward to follow and can be easily understood by anyone from headteachers and governors to parents.



It includes the history of academies, definitions of academy trusts, the conversion process, financial aspects of running an academy, other academies in your area, existing sponsors, a directory of leading suppliers, plus a list of the forms you need to convert your school – and where to find them.



The guide will be available in May from LCP at £149.95 but you can get 15 per cent off if you order before the end of May 2013.
