Floreat Education Reflections on a Free School bid: Part 2 – Floreat Education

This is the second part of my reflections on putting in a Free School bid. You can find Part 1 here.

The inspiration behind this post is the tension that exists in the Free School policy between encouraging innovation and minimising risk. This policy is most powerful when it’s used as a disruptive technology – a route in for challenger brands to do something different, set higher expectations, and shake up the status quo.

However, increasingly Free Schools are being used to meet the shortfall in school places. Established providers are preferred over new ones, which only makes sense if your goal is simply to have enough places but fails to harness the potential of Free Schools to drive innovation.
