Answered on

18 January 2017

The Regional Schools Commissioner is working collaboratively with Peterborough City Council to identify areas for improvement in Peterborough primary schools. The Department is currently intervening in those primary schools with unacceptably low results this summer to ensure improved outcomes in 2017. We are encouraging Good and Outstanding schools to set up their own Multi Academy Trust to increase capacity in a school-led system. In addition, we are bringing in high quality academy sponsors from other parts of the country to support struggling schools.
