Three people have pleaded guilty to running an unregistered school where Ofsted claims councils paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to send children to be educated. The Independent reports.
Patricia Hodgkinson, Dr Albert Okoye and Clement Earle have been convicted for running Freiston Hall in Boston, Lincolnshire, in what is believed to be the third prosecution of its kind.
It was an unregistered school for children with highly complex physical and mental health needs.
Inspectors found unsupervised children wandering around the premises and staff who were struggling to keep reasonable order and calm, with pupils becoming agitated and upset.
