Decision delayed for Academisation of Gladstone Park School
14 February 2013:In an article about Gladstone Park School's forced academy campaign in yesterday's Brent and Kilburn Times, the DfE is quoted as saying that no decision had been taken yet on a sponsor.
“We are currently considering Ofsted’s report and representations from the school before making any final decision on whether Gladstone Park will become a sponsored academy.
“In the vast majority of cases we have worked in partnership with schools wanting to transfer to academy status. However, where underperformance is not being tackled effectively, the Secretary of State does have powers to intervene to make sure standards improve.”
