Just read this on my local newspaper website
"Claremont High staff vote against academy status for Kenton school
STAFF at a Kenton school have voted overwhelmingly against pursuing academy status sparking calls for a consultation with parents.
Around 70 per cent of employees who took part in a secret ballot at Claremont High School, in Claremont Avenue, said they opposed the proposals. "
I wish there could be secret ballots at all schools where Academy status is being considered. You're bound to get a fairer result in a consultation that way I'd have thought.
