TKAT

25 Feb 2015

Parents at a ‘failing’ primary school say they are “ecstatic” after its governors rejected a sponsor chosen by the government to turn it into an academy.

Twydall Primary in Gillingham, Kent was put into special measures last year after an Ofsted inspection.

The government wanted it to become an academy under the Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT) but 89% of parents voted against the plan.
