Putting the case against academies in Barnet

A circular from Barnet Anti Academies Alliance outlining their plans for informing parents about the implications of going for academy status. If you can help with any of these activities or you would like more information, email
At our meeting this evening, we planned a number of activities. We will be focussing on the schools next in line to become Academies. Trade Unionists in those schools will be meeting to consider motions opposing Academy status, and we will be leafletting parents at events such as open evenings.

We would like to leaflet at the following times, please let me know if you can help:

East Barnet - 6.30pm, Monday 20th September

Ravenscroft - 6pm, Tuesday 21st September

Ashmole - 6pm, Thursday 23rd September (leaflet for 30-40 minutes before going to the Public Meeting, see below)

Compton - Tuesday 28th September (probably 6pm)

We also discussed holding a Conference in January, any ideas you have would be welcome.

And don't forget the public meeting, Thursday 23rd September, 7pm, Emerald Suite, NLBP with a speaker from the National Anti Academies Alliance.
