NSN Director welcomes CST White Paper

Responding to the Confederation of School Trusts White Paper, NSN Director Unity Howard said:

"New Schools Network welcomes the White Paper published by the Confederation of School Trusts (CST) today. As outlined in our response to the consultation, and in our recent report Free schools: the next 10 years, we believe it is essential that effective incentives are in place to ensure there is enough capacity to sustainably grow new, high-performing single- and multi-academy trusts.

"CST’s call for one system led from within communities, by communities, is also encouraging. NSN believes to truly innovate and spread educational best practice, practitioners and communities must be able to work together to develop provision most suited to their needs. We look forward to continuing to work with communities, and the CST, to ensure a good school for every child."
