Vara secures meeting with Schools Minister

11th December 2017

Shailesh Vara secures meeting with Schools Minister to discuss the future of Sawtry Village Academy.

Sawtry Village Academy in my constituency is in serious financial difficulty, not least because of the activities of its former head, which included building a sex dungeon alongside his office for his private use. That headteacher is now in prison, but the financial difficulties of the school remain. Will the Minister kindly agree to meet me and representatives of the school to discuss the way forward?

Yes, I would be happy to meet my hon. Friend to discuss the financial and academic future of that school.
