Stephen Twigg: Changing type of school is not enough

Stephen Twigg MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to the  Prime Minister’s announcement on primary academies, said:

“The original focus of Labour’s academy programme was on under-performing  schools – but unlike this Government, we worked with schools to ensure  improvements were sustainable.

“Changing the type of school is not enough – we need a programme to raise  the quality of teaching and school leadership, which is what makes the  most difference. But under this Government, we’ve seen 10,000 teachers  leave the profession.

“We also need a One Nation education plan – getting strong schools to  support weaker schools, so that no school is left behind. That can be  chieved in many ways, including through federations, clusters of schools and co-operative trusts – academies are not the only answer.”
