De-Souza confirmed as Children’s Commissioner despite concerns

Dame Rachel de Souza will become the next children’s commissioner for England from next year after MPs narrowly approved her appointment.

Gavin Williamson has confirmed the academy trust boss will take up the role next year after the Parliamentary education committee found she was “appointable”.

However, the committee said this was “not a unanimous view” among its members, following a gruelling pre-appointment hearing on Tuesday that saw de Souza questioned over exclusions and SEND support at the Inspiration Trust, where she is currently CEO.
