A row which threatened a £775,000 grant to a strictly Orthodox school may now be speedily resolved.
Beis Chinuch Lebonos, a school for Charedi girls, in Stamford Hill, North London, was awarded the grant by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF), in order to build a 72-place workplace nursery. It was intended to cater for employees' children, as well as for people living in the area.
A condition of the grant was that the funding had to be administered locally through the Learning Trust, which oversees education in Hackney.
