Abstract:

An outstanding primary school begins the transition to being a new style academy, with the headteacher sharing his experiences and outlining his concerns as well as what he sees as the advantages of academy status. South Farnham School headteacher Andrew Carter talks about the process of becoming an academy and why they haven't signed on the dotted line yet. He also explains the paperwork involved and how the school has consulted with staff and parents. Andrew explains the importance of having a chartered accountant as the school's bursar and predicts that his governors will be ready to give the go-ahead change to academy status within the year. It is the new freedom of academy status that appeals to the school. Ideas being considered include opening up the school 48 weeks of the year, creating a gifted and talented music school, and encouraging good teachers to stay with bonus payments.

Governors from outstanding primary school South Farnham talk about their journey in becoming an academy as they merge with a local infants school. Headteacher, Andrew Carter, talks about the process of merging with a local primary school before they sign the paperwork which will make them an academy with over 700 pupils. The decision to become an academy is made by the school's governing body. Some of whom have struggled with the decision but have decided on balance to embrace the changes. Initially, it looked as though the disadvantages were outweighing the advantages, with concerns about staff terms and conditions, buying back services from the council, use of the land and VAT. The governing body at South Farnham have chosen to become an academy and are preparing to take on the additional responsibilities that come with being the trustees of a multi-million pound trust.
