This week in Parliament I formally presented the petition signed by 2,599 people calling for the removal of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) from the management of Felixstowe Academy, so the school can have a fresh start under new leadership for the benefit of pupils.
Earlier this year I met the National Schools Commissioner, Sir David Carter, who informed me that he has written a Pre-termination Warning letter to AET. This is the first stage of the process that can lead to securing a new organisation to run the school. I continue to follow up this issue with the Department of Education.
In the meantime, I wish the students taking their exams the very best.
