School closer to academy move: the front page of today's Sheffield Telegraph

A funding deal to transform the status of a Crosspool school into an academy could be signed as early as Monday.

Today’s Sheffield Telegraph covers the story on its front page.

A meeting for parents only took place on Tuesday at the school. Concerns have been raised by parents, councillors and education officers over the consultation process.

Teachers at Tapton are against the move, fearing that becoming an academy will not raise educational standards.

Governors feel such a move would be in the school’s best interest, allowing them to balance the books by negotiating better value services.
