A police investigation into the allegations of fraud was dropped
The site manager at a Nottingham school has been sacked after he went public with allegations of misconduct.
Kevin Darby raised concerns about the Bluecoat School in Aspley in 2007. He was suspended in December of that year.
An internal inquiry found evidence of fraudulent activity involving publicly-funded building contracts.
Mr Darby said he had been sacked for gross misconduct for speaking to the media about disciplinary proceedings against advice - which he denies doing.
The school declined to comment as Mr Darby can still appeal against the decision to dismiss him.
He used whistle-blowing rules to complain about the running of the school in 2007.
A police investigation into alleged fraudulent activity at the school was dropped after the Department for Children, Schools and Families said it did not want to pursue the matter.
Mr Darby faced disciplinary action over allegations of financial irregularities.
The school found there was misconduct on his part and issued him with a final written warning over that matter.
The decision to dismiss Mr Darby was for disclosing an internal report about the disciplinary proceedings against him to the media.
"I've been dismissed for going to the media which I totally deny," said Mr Darby.
He said he intended to appeal against the decision.
Kevin Darby was told he was dismissed for speaking to the press about disciplinary matters
