Chivenor School governors say YES to academy

Governors at Chivenor School last week agreed to apply for academy status. If successful, they will break away from Birmingham Education Authority, and be managed by an academy organisation. The governors have chosen Prospect as their preferred partner.
Chivenor has been under pressure to take some action in view of its performance in the league tables.
Last year, Chivenor School came 247th on the list of Birmingham’s 275 schools.
Only half of Year 6 pupils at the school achieved the levels expected in English and maths.
Michale Gove, the Government’s Education Secretary, has said that 60% is the minimum standard he will accept for all primary schools in English and maths.
Chivenor’s headteacher Melissa Louca and the chair of governors will meet with local authority bosses next week to discuss the plans.

  1. How stupid you only have to look at the privatisation of the public services we already had to see it’s the wrong choice. time will tell

  2. Sutton Coldfiel citizen

    Rubbish, it is an excellent idea and will hopefully instill some moral fibre in the next generation of would be work shy chavs and chavettes. Though in my opinion a twenty foot fence should be built around Castle Vale to keep them all in and away from our Parade.

  3. How dare you tar everyone with the same brush. There are lots of decent people on Castle Vale. It’s people like you that continue to give our community a bad name!

  4. Ignore him, he’s just an attention-seeking troll.

  5. Thank you nemesis. Just really makes me angry when people generalise.

  6. Anonymous, that person clearly has limited powers of reasoning and a quite undeserved sense of superiority. He’s pathetic.

  7. Slutten coldfield wishes it had the class and culture of edgbaston and harbourne but fails greatly, great place for picking up cheap slags…all cash and no class…..No culture whatsoever and not an ounce of quality, more like a mixture of only way is essex mixed with emmerdale farm…In fact most people from the vale end up there as they think they’re upgrading area lmao……go choke on ya credit cards…sutten coldfield oh please

  8. If i dont see my comment come up i will be seeking legal advice re: discrimination

  9. again I find it strange that someone who lives in Sutton and thinks all the residents of CV are chavs would bother to come onto this site to make silly comments… some people certainly don’t have anything better to do… silly person.

  10. I and my family used to pop into Sainsburys on Castle Vale on a regular basis for quality food but alas after having my prestige company supplied car scratched several times by BMX riding 20 to 30 age group Chavs and Chavettes I decided not to visit this “woe is me place because I am a low paid worker or unemployable” area. Once a council estate always a council estate.
