Sudbury: Tudor Primary School’s action plan gets under way

14:33 13 March 2014

Archant

The headteacher of a west Suffolk primary school judged “inadequate” by Government inspectors says measures introduced to bring the school back up to scratch are already starting to pay off.

Ofsted inspectors deemed ‘special measures’ were needed at Tudor Primary School in Sudbury after they sat in on 17 lessons and analysed staff and parent responses to an online survey.

In the recently published report, it was noted that the pupils’ achievement, the quality of teaching and leadership and management were all inadequate while the behaviour and safety of students required improvement.

The report did however note that headteacher Martin James, who took up the post last September, had not been given enough time to monitor the quality of teaching and learning since the previous inspection in January 2012, which resulted in a ‘satisfactory’ judgement.

Mr James said the local education authority had carried out a review last week and could already see improvements.

Changes have been made to the timetable so children have maths and English lessons in the morning and extra adults have been introduced into those classes to offer additional support.

Mr James said: “We still have a long way to go but we already have rigorous action plans in place.

“Morale has been up and down but the students are happy and safe here and we have already started on a journey to improve the aspects that need attention.”

There is nothing work than getting stuck in traffic jams caused by roadworks.

The southbound carriageway of the A11 near Barton Mills is currently closed after a three-vehicle crash.

The last day of February this year will see people across the country indulging in a pancake or two.

My half term week could best be described as a tale of two cinemas, writes Sheena Grant.
