QE Governors to consider conversion to Academy status

In a letter dated 26th May, Michael Gove, the new Secretary of State for Education, invited the Governors to consider acquiring Academy status as soon as possible.

Mr Gove pointed out that as Queen Elizabeth’s is currently rated outstanding by Ofsted this means that the School automatically meets the criteria for Academy status. Details are available on www.education.gov.uk under the Academies tab where interested parties may find the list of frequently asked questions helpful.

The Governing body will now address each of the issues that need to considered at an extraordinary meeting on Thursday 10th June. Those wishing to comment may email here.
