West Sussex Academy Watch
West Sussex Academy Watch (WSAW) believes in a free and democratically accountable state education system which is responsive to all stakeholders.
We believe that investment in schools is often wasted on structural change according to the government policy of the day. Instead, investment in teaching in learning should take priority.
West Sussex Academy Watch does not believe that any school should be forced to become an academy. This objection extends to shifting Ofsted categorisation which forces more schools to ‘fail.’
Our activity includes writing to governors, lobbying councillors, petitioning the public, writing press releases, holding public meetings and distributing leaflets. We also aim to provide an information service to parents, governors and school staff in West Sussex on the argument against academisation.
We are in the process of affiliating to Anti-Academies Alliance at the time of writing.
