Funding axed from failing academy trust

An academy trust has had its funding terminated following a series of poor Ofsted inspections.
Five of the 12 schools sponsored by the Education Fellowship Trust (TEFT) are currently rated as “inadequate”. The Department for Education (DfE) said it had agreed to a request from the trust to terminate its funding agreement “following ongoing concerns” about educational performance. It is the first time an academy chain has had to give up all of its schools. More details.
