We are making good progress. The LDA has been leading this programme and reports that work is progressing to set up the Mayors Academy trust (or body) to oversee the development of the programme. The LDA will also partner with a core education provider for our first academy project which is expected to be in the London Borough of Enfield. Discussions with other local authorities and the Department for Children Schools and Families (DCSF) are continuing to identify further opportunities.
