Education damaged by academy failures and misuse of funds

PAC takes new evidence from Ofsted Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman today (23 Jan).

  • Governance of academy trusts must be strengthened and the DfE’s oversight more rigorous
  • Trusts are not sufficiently transparent or accountable to parents and communities
  • Concerns persist about the impact of funding pressures and the extent of asbestos in schools

There has been a succession of high-profile academy failures that have been costly to the taxpayer and damaging to children’s education.

Some academy trusts have misused public money through related-party transactions and paying excessive salaries.
