School Funding News

Here are some recent news stories around the web regarding school funding:-

'Fat cat' academy bosses face challenge over pay

The bosses of academy trusts running large chains of schools in England are going to be challenged by education ministers over "fat-cat" pay.

Lord Agnew says the government's school funding agency is to write to multi-academy trusts asking how pay over £150,000 relates to school performance.

The chief executive of Harris Federation became the first in the state sector to earn over £500,000.

Head teachers say the public needs to be "reassured" over school spending.

Lord Agnew, in a letter to academy trusts, has warned that the funding agency would soon be contacting multi-academy trusts paying above £150,000 - and that if performance is going down, pay for chief executives should also be cut.

£745 million spent on turning state schools into academies

An estimated £745 million has been spent on turning state schools into academies, according to a report by the spending watchdog.

As of January this year, almost 7,000 schools in England had been converted but it warns the programme is facing issues such as a lack of sponsors, who take on responsibility for running the converted schools.

The National Audit Office (NAO) report also says it is unclear how feasible it is for the Government to continue to convert large numbers of schools into academies - state schools that are not under local council control and receive their funding directly from Whitehall.

The report argues that in many cases, it is taking longer than expected to turn under-performing schools into academies.

Writing exclusively in today’s Sunday People, Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner unveiled the new pledge.

And Mrs Rayner committed to using the £14bn to strip dangerous flammable cladding from the school estate.

The pledge is part of a package of proposed safety measures, including closing the loopholes that allowed developers to get away with not installing such safety precautions in the first place.
