Burton Joyce School

Vernon Coaker, MP for Gedling, has today issued a joint statement with John Clarke and Nicki Brooks (County Councillors for Carlton East) regarding Burton Joyce School:

'This has been and is obviously a very difficult time for Burton Joyce Primary School.

Staff, governors and parents - with the support of the local community - have been working hard to both maintain and improve standards for the benefit of the pupils, who must be our priority.

In spite of this, a recent Ofsted inspection has found that there are still significant issues and has therefore placed the school in ‘special measures’.

The County Council, which is responsible for the school, has responded with an action plan which includes setting up an Interim Executive Board.

It is now important that all of us work together to ensure that children receive the best possible education without any further delay.’
