Leading academy trusts that helped to found the Oak National Academy at the height of the pandemic have severed ties with the government quango after choosing not to bid to supply lessons.

Meanwhile, Schools Week understands that publishing giant Pearson has won one of the 12 contracts worth a total of £8.2 million to create curriculum packages for the website.

At least seven of Oak’s original 11 trust curriculum partners have snubbed the new arms-length government body.

They include Ark Schools, one of the country’s leading trusts on curriculum, and Reach Academy Trust, which incubated Oak before it was nationalised.
