The new Bill would give regional Schools Commissioners powers to bring in leadership support from other excellent schools and outstanding heads, and would speed up the process of turning schools into academies.

An inadequate Ofsted judgement would usually lead to a school being converted into an academy and, controversially, barriers would be removed to enable swift progress towards conversion. ‘Coasting’ schools, yet to be defined but understood to mean those showing a prolonged period of ‘mediocre performance’ and insufficient pupil progress, would be eligible for academisation. ASCL provide a useful summary.
