Federations of Schools

Schools in England have had the opportunity to join up as a local Federation of Schools since 2003 – see guidance document.

Glen Rikowski gives and excellent critique of the evolution of this approach and it would appear that it has become synonymous with the notion of businesses taking control of schools. Yet there are many aspects of the Federation of Schools model which might provide a template for our ideas for community ownership of schools – albeit in a very different direction of travel.
