BSF in my area (Wellingborough)...
Just doing a little looking and found that my area: Wellingborough, Northants is in group E (wave 13-15), and is one of the last schools that will be "BSF"-ed. See here (the excel spreadsheet). It looks like waves 7-15 is still in management consultation until the 4th of July.
Just rang up Northants County Council and left a message for more info. Currently, I'm neither "for" or "against" as I don't have enough infomation.
I been thru alot of the post and alot are negative about BSF, but does anyone actually have anything good to say about the BSF?

It'll be a God-send for the small percentage of schools that have woefully inadequate IT due to lack of SLT investment and staffing.

To quote bossman "What I can tell you is that apparently Gordon Brown and David Cameron have agreed that up to wave 6 will still go ahead even if there is political change."
I'm in wave 7-9, and your even later so it might not even happen.

There is a consultation document from HM Govt looking at waves 7-15.

If your school is a candidate for becoming an academy or is on the 'hit-list' as a failing school BSF may be sooner than you think, especially if your LA can get their act together & make a bid.....

It makes no odds to me (like I said I'm neither for or against it) whether or not my school does go down the BSF route. I'm not trying to sound heartless, but I'm trying to get out of the education sector anyway - this was more out of curiousity

Ken, I'll have a chat with you over a beer (coke in my case) on Saturday. Northants is still dealing with PFI stuff and the Strategy for Change / Business Plan hasn't been started yet.
