Maaz Free School Approved
On 12th April written notification was received from the Department of Education that the Secretary of State for Education had approved the Trust’s application to establish the Maaz Free School.
Despite recognising the strengths of the application for The Alioc Free School this was not approved as there “were other applications which better aligned with the Secretary of State’s priorities within the region”. The trust will be seeking clarification from the Department of Education as to how the Alioc application can be enhanced and will be resubmitting in the next wave of Free School applications post the General Election.
The Maaz Project Team met for the first time on 19th April to discuss priorities and next steps pending the initial kick-off meeting with the Department for Education. Further information as to the progress of the Maaz free school will be posted on the website as and when available.
