Academy Consultation

22 Jun 2018

Decision to halt Academisation process
As part of our work on the proposed academisation with REAch2, the governors have continued to carry out due diligence to ensure that any decision taken about the future of Handsworth is the right one for our school.
As a result of this work, we have made the decision to stop the current process and this application will not go to the Head Teachers’ board.  We believe REAch2 shares our values and passion for primary education and the governors would like to thank them and in particular Sir Steve Lancashire for their time, commitment and transparency. 

Next steps
The financial constraints the school and the Local Authority are operating under are not going away and, whilst this may not always be visible, this does impact both financially and operationally across the school. The governors are clear that they will need to continue to explore all options for Handsworth in order to secure the best outcomes for our children. You can read more about the options we have already explored in our FAQ.
