The new issue of Academy Magazine is out now – with a new editor at the helm.

Peter Beaven has taken on the editorship of this increasingly popular title, which is produced in partnership with FASNA (Freedom and Autonomy for Schools – National Association).

Peter retired as headteacher of Norton Hill and Somervale Schools in Midsomer Norton, Somerset, in August 2012.

“As the new editor of Academy Magazine I am working outside my comfort zone which is always exhilarating!” he said.

“I believe Academy Magazine must rise to the challenge of bringing the most up-to-date and relevant news on cutting edge issues in education to our readers.

“I hope to be able to attract items from those who are responsible for shaping education at a national level as well as highlighting innovative and successful practice from schools themselves. My first issue demonstrates just that balance.

“So if you have experience of good practice, innovative and exciting developments please get in touch and we may be able to showcase what you are doing. I am especially keen to hear more from primary schools.”

The 76-page new issue reports on FASNA’s 20th anniversary conference, which featured a speech by Education Secretary Michael Gove, and covers a range of topics in the areas of freedom, regulation and funding; leadership, teaching and classroom; conversion and free schools; and procurement and business servies.

You will also fund the latest news, advice, comment and opinion from educators working in the academy and free school sector.

You can read the e-zine online now (free of charge) at www.academymag.co.uk.
