Education group warned

AN ACADEMY firm which is in charge of two schools in Daventry has been warned about the poor reporting of its accounts.

E-Act, which looks after the Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village and The Parker E-Act Academy, was issued with a financial notice to improve by the Education Funding Agency. It found ‘weaknesses’ in the reporting of the accounts’ for some of its 31 schools.

An E-Act spokesman said: “Many of the required changes have already been implemented and we are confident we can address and resolve these issues by July. Our focus remains on our mission to provide excellence in education; with the continued improvement in standards across all academies.”
