Schools white paper 2022: summary
Find out about upcoming policy changes and what they mean for your school. Plans include new attainment targets in literacy and numeracy, an academy-led education system and a drive to increase attendance.
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.
New statutory interventions for schools consistently rated less than 'good'
From September 2022, maintained schools and academies with 2 or more consecutive Ofsted ratings below 'good' will be in the scope of intervention powers to join an academy trust or change trusts. These powers will initially focus on EIAs, though the plan is that they'll apply nationally.
