The ruling Tory-Lib Dem administration this week confirmed a policy of taking control of the service which is now provided by Education Bradford.
Council leader Kris Hopkins (Con) told the Yorkshire Post:
'We have lived with Serco, who have worked exremely hard to deliver and raise educational attainment but I believe Bradford Council should be able to deliver its own education provision.'
In a statement today Education Bradford's managing director, John Gaskin, said:
'We remain absolutely committed to Bradford. What we need to do now is to find ways of working together to improve outcomes for pupils in the district. We welcome the announcement of a review of the Education Bradford contract and the opportunity to make sure that this critical strategic partnership functions effectively on all sides.'
