Hopes for improvements at March primary school
Ofsted inspectors have given “inadequate” ratings to March’s Burrowmoor Primary and Maple Grove Infant Schools within months.
Fenland MP Steve Barclay said: “It is always concerning when a school gets a disappointing Ofsted report but, at the same time, as we have seen elsewhere in the constituency, this is often the trigger for improvements to move the school onto a more positive note.”
President of the Cambridgeshire branch of the NUT, Martin Fields, said: “What is important to remember with Ofsted is it is a judgement made over a couple of days when staff are under huge pressure and does not reflect the excellent education children can be getting in schools. Teachers are a professional and dedicated bunch of people doing their best for the children in their care.”
