Controversial Academy Plan In Chaos

Recommended Posts

http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/controversial_academy_plan_in_chaos_1_3723269

A TOP Sheffield secondary has been forced to postpone its controversial move to academy status - because school bosses do not own the buildings.

Tapton, which was rebuilt using Private Finance Initiative funding 10 years ago, was set to become an academy this Thursday.

But at the 11th hour the switch has stalled, after legal concerns were raised by the school’s owner - private finance initiative company Interserve - and its funders Lloyds Banking Group.

Tapton is one of the first in the country to be affected by an issue which could hit countless secondaries nationwide - as schools rebuilt using PFI money now try to take on academy status.

Headteacher David Bowes told The Star: “It could be this is not just a problem of our PFI contract, but all other PFI contracts. And it may take new government legislation to change that.”

Yet again PFI raises it head and starts to have unintended consequences.

Which idiot thought PFI was a good idea...
