Academies and PFI

October 17th, 2011 by Edward Capewell

There has recently been a degree of confusion surrounding the role of local authorities vis a vis PFI contractors when a maintained school becomes an academy (see Holly Stout’s post in September here). The Department for Education has therefore published an opinion it has obtained from leading counsel on the issue. You can view both the instructions and the opinion on the DfE’s website and read an article about the issue on the website of the Local Government Lawyer.
