Trojan Horse – response to DfE Wormald review

By on 16/01/2015 in Cllr Jones, News

Response to the internal ‘Wormald’  review into the Department for Education.

Brigid Jones, cabinet member for children and family services, said: “Whilst I welcome the publication of the report and the commitment of the current Secretary of State to tackling the department’s past failings, it is disappointing that this review was undertaken internally.

“Birmingham City Council submitted itself to extensive independent review on this matter,and published an action plan for dealing with issues in our schools, which we consulted on widely with the school community.

“Parents of children in academies deserve the same level of confidence in their schools, and as such I hope that the Department for Education will be similarly consulting on their action plan to deal with its failings as highlighted by both this report and Peter Clarke’s, and subsequently publishing it for parents to see.”
