Michael Gove sacks Downhills School governors
Education Secretary Michael Gove has sacked the governing body of a "failing" school at the centre of a row over attempts to make it an academy.
The governors of Downhills Primary School in Haringey, north London, have been replaced with a high-profile "interim executive board".
It will now consult on whether the school will become an academy. Parents had campaigned against such a move.
