Ofsted report exposes Cameron and Gove’s Free School programme as a dangerous free-for-all - Tristram Hunt

Tristram Hunt MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, responding to revelations in the Guardian on the failings at one of Michael Gove’s flagship free schools, said:

“What this report exposes is that David Cameron and Michael Gove’s Free School programme has become a dangerous free-for-all: an out of control ideological experiment that has closed a school, leaving 400 children losing an entire week of learning.

“Pupils have been failed on every possible measure and parents will want to know how David Cameron and Michael Gove have allowed this to happen – especially as Ofsted identified that this school was not meeting the basic requirements on child protection before it was opened. Far from an isolated incident, the failings at this school reveal the systemic threat to education standards under this Government.

“David Cameron and Michael Gove can no longer ignore this issue – it is a crisis entirely of their own making.”
