Exposed: The academy trust chief who boasted he ‘flicked away’ safeguarding concerns

An academy trust boss has boasted that he simply “flicked away” safeguarding complaints made by a whistleblower at a failing primary school.

In a tirade to staff at Birchen Coppice Primary Academy in Kidderminster, Andrew Morrish, the chief executive of the Victoria Academies Trust (VAT), threatened to uncover and “deal with” the anonymous whistleblower who had behaved in a “treacherous”, “underhand” and “pathetic” way.

Morrish spoke to staff at the school after an employee wrote to Ofsted raising issues relating to safeguarding, trust expenditure and treatment of staff.
