School governors have 'fair meeting' with Lord Nash

Yesterday Chris Cook, Chair of Governors at Discovery New School, met with Schools Minister Lord Nash, supported by Henry Smith MP and Phillip Bujak, who is the Chief Executive of The Montessori St Nicholas Charity.

At the meeting, Mr Cook presented the case and options for extending support to Discovery New School to Lord Nash.

Mr Cook said:

“We had a fair hearing. We were not given a response at the meeting and must wait to hear what Lord Nash has concluded from our conversations.

I’d like to thank Henry Smith MP for his support and Lord Nash for his time. It is appreciated.”
