Fears as Vardy schools change hands

FOUR schools set up by a businessman are to be taken over by an education trust which was last year told not to take on any more academies.

Sir Peter Vardy’s Emmanuel Schools Foundation – which runs schools in Gateshead and Blyth – announced yesterday that it is hand over its four schools to the United Learning Trust (ULT), the country’s largest sponsor of academies.

The move comes even though ULT was last year told by the then Department for Children, Schools and Families not to expand until it had corrected poor performance at two schools judged by Ofsted to be inadequate.

Isn't it a good thing to get them out of Vardy's hands?
