To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families when the executive responsible for the federated academy on the Isle of Sheppey expects to publish its consultation plans on which specialism will be available for each school site. (155664)

The September newsletter published by the Project Steering Group for this academy indicated that the dual specialisms of Business and Enterprise and Sport will be available for the whole academy on both of its sites. 10,000 copies have been circulated widely on the Island. The period of formal consultation will conclude in November at which point a Funding Agreement for the Sheppey Academy should be with us for approval. Full details of consultation and briefing events are included in the September newsletter, a copy of which has been placed in the Library of the House.
