The Focus Learning Trust has made a number of representations to the Government concerning the establishment of an academy or a trust school in which the FLT would have a role, and my honourable friend the Minister of State for Schools has discussed these representations with the FLT.

There are no current proposals to establish any such academy or trust school. Any proposal to establish a trust school involving the FLT would be a matter for local decision making. Any proposal to establish an academy involving the FLT would be considered by the Secretary of State on its merits.
