Durand Academy Caretaker.

Durand Academy Caretaker.

Caretaker who is also a trustee at the embattled academy was paid three times the going rate, including £39,000 lump sum covering eight years of unclaimed annual leave 

A caretaker at a controversial academy trust was paid at least £100,000 last year – including a one-off payment of £39,000 for eight years of unclaimed holiday, Tes can reveal.

The one-off payment to Brendan McShane is understood to have been signed off by the school's former headteacher Mark McLaughlin.

Mr McLaughlin left in August 2017, after the Department for Education decided to withdraw funding from the trust following concerns about its financial management and governance.

Durand's website describes Mr McShane as its premises manager, though he was also named by the trust as its caretaker when contacted by Tes.
