NEU joins calls for probe into collapsed free schools at centre of financial scandals

Britain’s largest teaching union has joined calls for a Serious Fraud Office investigation into allegations of financial impropriety at two collapsed free schools.

National Education Union joint general secretaries Dr Mary Bousted and Kevin Courtney have written to SFO chief Lisa Osofsky to demand a probe into Collective Spirit Free School and Manchester Creative Studio School.

It follows Schools Week investigations that have shed light on £2 million of payments to companies linked to the schools’ former chief executive Raja Miah, and allegations that the former chair of directors Alun Morgan used a “false VAT number” when billing a council for consultancy services.
