Members of the national parents' group meet tomorrow

Members of the crisis-riven national parents' group meet tomorrow to discuss for the first time the highly-critical Charity Commission investigation into their organisation, writes Clare Dean.

The open meeting, in Birmingham, comes almost a year after the National Confederation of Parent-Teacher Associations removed two trustees. Sandi Marshall and Sean Rogers, the then chair-elect, are now seeking legal aid with a view to pressing for judicial review.

They instigated the Charity Commission investigation into alleged improprieties in the NCPTA, which represents parents of children in 11, 500 state schools.

The 36-page report accused the charity of running up high expenses and hotel bills.

The Commission also claimed that three key officers may have benefited from positions of trust in being appointed to their jobs.

Leaders of the NCPTA have contested the report.
