The education trust that runs Tenbury High School has scrapped a cost cutting plan which a union claimed could put safety at risk.

Ormiston Academies Trust has been consulting staff on a plan which could have affected 130 jobs at the 38 schools it runs across the country.

It was never made clear how many, if any, jobs at Tenbury would have been affected.

However, the Trust has now announced it has dropped the proposal.

The idea was to streamline maintenance, caretaking and information technology roles to improve efficiency.

But a Trust statement said: "We have decided not to proceed with the proposals.

“We have been pleased with the level of engagement with the consultation we opened.

"We were always clear that we wanted to hear the views of all interested parties and that no decisions had been made.

“We will continue to invest in school improvement, teaching and learning, and our wider team, while being as efficient as ever.”

The Trust's schools have 29,000 pupils.

When the plans were announced the union UNISON argued that the jobs of people responsible for health, safety and welfare checks - like fire alarms and safety routes - could go, threatening safety of pupils and staff.

But the Trust said it was irresponsible of the union because it would never compromise safety.
