“Park View parents want excellence and nothing less for their children. That’s what I’ve been determined to deliver through intense negotiations with ministers, officials, Ofsted, city education leaders and parents over the last month.

 

“It was right for the current governors to step down so we can get cracking with a brilliant new team of outstanding education experts and parents to take the school forward. Park View is a school of outstanding teachers and pupils. I’m determined to ensure that its best days lie ahead.”

 

“We now need the new education secretary to call an end to Michael Gove’s attempt to divide our community. She needs to get behind the new team and Park View parents and pupils.”

 

“The first stage is new Trust members to take office so that we can quickly move to get parents’ on the team. I’m delighted that Kamal Hanif, headteacher of School of the Year, Waverley School together with Pat Smart, headteacher of Greet primary school and a National Education Leader, and Yvonne Wilkinson, headteacher of King Edwards VI Five Ways, have agreed to serve on the new trust.

 

“The second piece of the solution is for Washwood Heath Academy to become the new academy sponsor for Saltley School.

 

“I always said that we wanted the best in the business to work with parents taking the school forward and that’s exactly what we’ve managed to achieve.

 

“Parents told me that they wanted a local solution backed up by the best in the business – and that’s exactly what we’ve been able to deliver tonight”
