Collaboration is fundamental to what we do
Local community schools should be collaborating and cooperating rather than seeking to compete. It would not surprise me if we see a sudden rise in permanent exclusions from newly formed academies, which the remaining community schools will have to deal with.
As the governor of a special school for students with behavioural problems I have similar concerns. Collaboration is fundamental to what we do, as we act as both a place of last resort for some students and work extensively to support all schools within the local authority.
