'Shaping the Future' for the Freedom and Autonomy for Schools National Association


With the new schools funding model still to be announced, student numbers rising and teacher and support staff costs increasing; a special programme is being produced to explore the systems, structures and cost-saving innovations that can secure standards.

The Freedom and Autonomy for Schools National Association (FASNA) and ITN Productions are producing a news and current affairs-style programme hosted by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky.

‘Shaping the Future’ will bring to life the current systemic and funding issues within UK schools, with interviews, news reports and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations. The programme investigates how schools can be supported in delivering better educational outcomes, in a lean and uncertain funding landscape.

Launching at the FASNA Autumn Conference on 2nd November 2017 at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London. The aim of ‘Shaping the Future’ is to heighten awareness among policy makers, politicians and the sector about the challenges facing our schools, and the fresh approaches that are required for a changing educational landscape.

The programme will form part of a communications campaign featuring FASNA members and the wider schools sector, professional partners, government, policy makers, journalists, writers and bloggers.
