The largest teaching union has published an independent study into academy schools amid what it calls 'considerable public and political anxiety' about the programme.

The National Association of Schoolmasters/Union of Women Teachers commissioned think-tank Catalyst/Public World to carry out the research.

General secretary Chris Keates said: 'Disturbingly, the research found that academy school sponsors appeared unwilling to disclose information about the work of their schools.

'Those who are responsible for millions of pounds of public money should be subject to the same rigours of accountability and information sharing as other maintained schools.'
