Forced Academies campaign

Academy building
The practice of forcing schools into academy status against the wishes of parents, pupils, schools and the larger community was strongly condemned by voters at NAHT Annual Conference 2012 in a number of motions.

NAHT believes that schools considering becoming an academy should have the support of their local community and deplores the government policy of “forced academies”.


We have lobbied the DfE on our opposition to forced academies and will continue to support schools and parents to have their say in deciding what works best for pupils in their communities.
