Park View Trust which was at the centre of the neocon incursion into Birmingham had its governing body dismantled, despite exposing many of the lies which were being pedalled by the media. In a mutual agreement between the governors and the Department for Education, strong assurances were made to governors and parents that there will be transparency in all the process in selecting the new leadership team. As mentioned in a previous blog, Colin Diamond, head of academies and free schools, promised parents and former governors at Park View School, Golden Hillock School and Nansen Primary, that the process of choosing governors would be influenced and driven by the community and parents.
Opaque Appointments and Policies
Parents of children at the school and other sources have confirmed that there is absolutely no transparency at the school. Appointments and policies are being discussed without any consultation or discussion with the parents.
The Executive head of Park View Academy is Adrian Packer. As of now, parents are unaware of how he was appointed. A concerned parent who did not want to be named told my source:
“We have effectively been shut out. It seems after the Trojan horse lies, this is how us Muslims will be treated when it comes to appointing senior members of the leadership of the school.”
