King Charles Primary to be reinspected within six weeks
11:00am Friday 13th September 2013 in Cornwall
King Charles School is set to be reinspected after being placed in "special measures" following a damning Ofsted report.
Schools are made subject to special measures under section 44(1) of the Education Act 2005, where the Chief Inspector is of the opinion that: ‘….the school is failing to give its pupils an acceptable standard of education, and the persons responsible for leading, managing or governing the school are not demonstrating the capacity to secure the necessary improvement in the school.’
Schools placed in special measures are not required to prepare a separate action plan but are expected to amend their existing plans to address the areas for improvement identified by the section 5 inspection.
The local authority , proprietor or sponsor must submit a statement and a plan of action to HMCI within ten working days of the school receiving the inspection report.
One of Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) will usually conduct the first monitoring inspection within four to six weeks of the publication of the section 5 inspection report.
