  • Greater freedom to innovate and raise standards;
  • Freedom from the control of the local authority;
  • The ability to set pay, benefits and working conditions for staff members;
  • The freedom to decide the Academy's curriculum;
  • Greater freedom to decide how to use budgets; and
  • The flexibility to alter term and school days.
