Department For Education
Summary of the responses we received, along with the governments response outlining the next steps.
The department is considering extending the risk protection arrangement (RPA) currently operational for academy trusts (ATs) to the local authority maintained school (LAMS) sector, so that sector can benefit from financial savings such as ATs have attained through membership of the RPA.
This public consultation exercise seeks views on extending the RPA to LAMS provision and will allow those with comments, views or concerns to express them. The Government will then make a decision on whether the RPA should be extended to L
