Academy trust criticised for taking on debt-ridden schools

An academy trust urged to expand by its regional schools commissioner was later rapped by the government for taking on schools that were struggling with debt.

Board minutes from September 2017 to September 2018 for the Nova Education Trust show that it was encouraged to expand by John Edwards, the RSC for East Midlands and the Humber.

However, the minutes also show that the 15-school Nottinghamshire trust then faced criticism from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) for not being more discerning about the schools it took on.
