DfE lets Harris and Oasis off the hook for £9.4m academy sponsor contributions

The government has let two leading academy trusts off the hook over millions owed in sponsor contributions, after a decade of fruitless efforts to reclaim the cash.

The Department for Education has now written off almost £5.8 million owed by the Harris Federation and more than £3.6 million owed by Oasis Community Learning, official documents reveal.

Kevin Courtney, joint general secretary of the NEU, called the decision “outrageous”, while an expert questioned why better mechanisms were not in place to claim cash.
