TWO more people have been arrested in connection with alleged fraud at Copland Community School in Wembley.
A 51-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman, believed to be ex-bursar Columbus Udokoro and former human resources manager Michelle Bishop, were arrested at two addresses in north west London on Thursday.
They were both arrested on suspicion to defraud and are currently being questioned by officers.
The arrests comes after the former headteacher and deputy headteacher of the school in Cecil Avenue, Wembley, were released on police bail last week.
Sir Alan Davies, the former head of Copland Community School, in Cecil Avenue, Wembley, and Dr Richard Evans, the former deputy head, were taken in for questioning by police last Tuesday (Mar 1) morning. Both were arrested on suspicion to defraud.
Mr Evans's wife was also arrested at the home she shares with her husband on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and theft.
The Metropolitan Police Fraud Squad began an investigation into allegations associated with the school's finances in June last year. All three were bailed to a date in late September.
The school, which had foundation status, first hit the headlines in April 2009 following allegations senior members of staff received 'unlawful' bonuses.
Sir Alan, who was knighted for services to education, resigned before he was due to face a disciplinary panel while Mr Evans was dismissed following a disciplinary hearing.
School bursar, Columbus Odukoro, and former head of human resources, Michelle Bishop, also resigned. Governors were suspended and an interim board was set up to run its finances.
Scotland Yard confirmed the arrests were in connection with an investigation into the alleged misappropriation of funds at the school.
