SALFORD SCHOOLS FUTURE AT RISK

THE FUTURE OF SALFORD SCHOOLS

Public Meting
Thursday 12th July 7pm
Swinton British Legion

As Salford City Council lurches ahead with its controversial conversion of Salford schools into academies, public sector trade union Salford City UNISON has called a public meeting to discuss the future of education.

Everyone, including councillors, MPs and the Mayor, has been invited to what should be a well stormy gathering…

With Salford City Council pressing ahead to convert Dukesgate Primary School in Little Hulton, Marlborough Road Primary in Broughton and The Albion High in East Salford into academies, Salford City UNISON has called a public meeting to discuss the future of education in the city.

Under the Council's proposals, the three schools will convert to academies by September this year, under the control of the Salford Academy Trust, led by Salford City College with the University of Salford and Salford Council as minor partners.

As John Merry, Assistant Mayor with responsibility for Young People, told the Salford Star recently, more schools could be in danger of going down the same slippery path (see here).

Last week, another Assistant Mayor, Roger Jones, called for a vote of staff and parents on the future of Irlam and Cadishead College, seemingly against Council policy as splits open up within the Labour Group on this controversial issue (see here).

"Under Councillor Merry's proposals, the Council would have a limited say in what happens to these schools once they become Academies" says Diane Ogg, Assistant Branch Secretary of Salford City UNISON "We think that schools should be accountable to local people so that they can tell their local Councillor if there is a problem at their child's school and expect to get the problem resolved. This step will take away that accountability."

UNISON has invited all Salford councillors, MPs and the Mayor to attend the discussion and everyone in Salford is also invited to attend.
