star this property answer text <p>The government believes that all schools can benefit from becoming an academy as part of a multi-academy trust (MAT). The department does not think it is necessary at this time to set a timescale for this ambition to be realised.</p><p>Academy conversion remains a positive choice for many schools who are voluntarily choosing to convert to enjoy the benefits of autonomy and working in collaboration with other schools as part of a MAT. More than 50% of all pupils in state funded schools in England are educated in an academy or free school. The department has been clear that maintained schools are only required to become sponsored academies, due to educational underperformance, if they are judged inadequate by Ofsted.</p> more like this

Previous administrations permitted selective schools to expand without placing any requirements upon them to admit more disadvantaged children. Sixteen grammar schools have successfully secured funding to expand via the SSEF and a second bidding round has been launched.</p><p>In order to promote greater social mobility, the Department has also agreed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Grammar School Heads Association under the terms of which the Association has agreed to work with its members to increase the number of disadvantaged pupils on roll.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Atkinson and Gregg ‘Who Benefits from Grammar Schools’ 2004 (<a href="http://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/cmpo/migrated/documents/bulletin11.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/cmpo/migrated/documents/bulletin11.pdf</a>) ‘Poor pupils who make it into grammar schools do exceptionally well, getting nearly eight grade points more – equivalent to eight GCSEs being raised from a C to a B. Those not attending grammar schools do no worse than their peers in non-selective LEAs. It is clear from this that selection does indeed work in favour of bright pupils from poor backgrounds’. Jon Andrews, Jo Hutchinson and Rebecca Johnes (2016), also found that ‘for children entitled to free school meals and attending grammar schools the estimated effect is larger than for non-FSM children – at around half a grade higher in each of eight GCSEs. However, it is important to note that this is based on just 500 grammar school pupils out of almost 90,000 FSM pupils in any single year group’ ‘<a href="http://dera.ioe.ac.uk/29308/1/Grammar_schools_and_social_mobility_policy_options_v2-1.pdf" target="_blank">Grammar schools and social mobility’, (Education Policy Institute)</a> (<a href="http://dera.ioe.ac.uk/29308/1/Grammar_schools_and_social_mobility_policy_options_v2-1.pdf" target="_blank">http://dera.ioe.ac.uk/29308/1/Grammar_schools_and_social_mobility_policy_options_v2-1.pdf</a>).</p><p> </p>
