Academies Review

Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which academies will be studied by the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit as part of its Academies Review; and if he will make a statement. (167780)

The joint PMDU/DCSF review of the Academies programme is looking at how the Academies programme is meeting the objectives of turning around attainment in underperforming schools and how the programme is addressing a culture of underachievement and low aspirations in some of the most disadvantaged communities. Officials are studying progress across the full Academy programme.
