Academy magazine, issue two…on the way! January 10, 2012

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Magazines, New releases.

A quick post to let you know that the second issue of Academy is just about to be sent off to the printers ahead of a publication later in the month.

Keen to build on the positive response to the launch issue, our editor Paul Strong has gathered together a fine collection of articles from a varied and experienced group of contributors, covering a wide range of topics relevant to the sector.

Tom Clark CBE, chairman of the board of FASNA (Foundation, Aided Schools and Academies National Association) writes about the national funding formula, expressing concerns and doubts about the proposed future role for Schools Forums, while John Dunford, formerly general secretary of ASCL (Association of School and College Leaders) says that the key to academy success is positive, not negative, liberty.

A collection of articles on governance includes contributions from Emma Franks of the National Governors’ Association; Joan Binder, vice-chair of FASNA; and Geoff Taylor, clerk to the governing body at two academies. Meanwhile, Bishop of Grimsby David Rossdale writes about the role of the church in academies and Martin Skelton, co-founder of Fieldwork Education, discusses the equal importance of knowledge, skills and understanding in the classroom.

Academy is published three times a year, at the start of each school term, in September, January and April. Subscriptions are available: visit the John Catt Bookshop for more information.
