The Department for Education says it hopes the One in a Million Free School in Bradford will open in 2013, despite having its funding pulled this year.
“Before any new schools open their doors, we have to be sure that all the conditions we set have been met. Setting up a Free School is a difficult task and we thank One in a Million for all their hard work.''
Pupils who were due to start at a free school in Bradford next week should have their uniform costs refunded, says a local councillor.
The Government has pulled the funding for one of its flagship Free Schools in Bradford, just days before it was due to open.
