Plans for an academy-led system
By 2030, all schools will be part of a multi-academy trust (MAT) or will have plans to join or form one.
There are no current measures to force well-performing schools to become academies.
Find out how academy governance works, and what questions you should ask if your school is planning to join an existing MAT or form a new one.
New statutory interventions for schools consistently rated less than 'good'
