Salusbury Primary avoids having academy sponsor foisted on them by choosing their own partner

The Brent and Kilburn Times LINK is reporting that Salusbury Primary School has found a partner (unrevealed) and will convert to an academy. The school which received a poor Ofsted report was faced with the possibility of being forced to become an academy by Michael Gove who would himself have found a sponsor.

It appears that the governing body moved quickly so they at least had a say in who would be their partner. Downhills Primary in Haringey,  who fought hard against academy status were eventually faced with a similar situation ended up with Lord Harris of carpet fame being chosen by Michael Gove as their sponsor.
