An Investigation into Free Schools in England
British Educational Leadership Management and Administration Society Introduction/summary of research project: Welcome to the web page of the Free Schools research project. Free Schools are new state schools that can be set up in England by parents, teachers, charities, faith and other not-for-profit organisations. Free Schools are independent of Local Authorities and their legal basis was provided for in the Academies Act 2010 – the first piece of legislation passed by the Coalition Government. The first 24 Free Schools opened in September 2011. The research project seeks to develop an empirical perspective on the entrance and impacts of these new Free Schools in state education. The project is currently concerned with: - who is proposing a Free School? - what are their aims and motivations? - what partnerships do they establish as they develop their proposal? - what relationships develop between Free Schools, their Local Authority and other local schools? The project is funded as part of the BELMAS (British Educational Leadership, Management and Administration Society) Structural Reform Programme. Summary of activities The project consists currently of two research phases. It is anticipated that further phases will be added as the project progresses. The current phases will take place during 2011-2015.
