trouble at Jarrow school

Seems there’s a rabbit away at Jarrow School.

Apparently South Tyneside council’s education department , the headmaster and the school’s governors are covering up some of the school’s failings who with the help of the council’s propaganda office are telling parents via the Shields Gazette Labour Gazetteer what a wonderful and high achieving establishment Jarrow School is.

The reality is that the Jarrow School is seriously failing many pupils year on year since the present inexperienced Head took over in 2005.

The most important GCSEs for Maths and English have dropped to 23% this year, yet the Lead member for Education, Jim ‘on the buses’ Foreman congratulated the school in the local snooze papaer for improving results!

What they did’nt mention was that the GCSEs which have improved are of no serious value and include ones such as cookery and silly subjects which the children CANNOT FAIL

The Council is allowing this incompetent Head to hide behind these results instead of taking action for the severe decline in the important GCSEs.

A quick look at OFSTED’s website will confirm that the current Head’s previous School, Congleton High School in Cheshire received a terrible report 18 months before he got the job at Jarrow School, bearing in mind Jarrow School was in a very poor state at the time the Council were duty bound to check this persons previous experience and Headships they clearly did not and panicked to appoint somebody much to the detriment of the pupils for the past 4 years.

The Headmaster loves appearing in the local snooze paper and was recently bragging that he had been invited to London by the SSAT (Specialist Schools and academies Trust ) for his GCSE results, it was hypocritical of him to have the neck to turn up at this event given the school’s true achievements.

    South Tyneside M.B.C., formerly known as Waggottopolis – by courtesy of I. Malcolm; but now Malcomsville – by courtesy of no one.
    A Borough in decline, where nothing is as it was first seen. A bit like Alice’s Wonderland, except that it’s apparently Malcolm’s Grottyland.
    Still, there’s always 2010!

    Mr Monkey, you are correct the LA and the Governors must by law check a Heads previous record and leadership qualities/experience/ track record and the OFSTED website should be the main port of call for any competent Governing Body or LA.

    Due to the fact that if anybody wants rid of a Head who clearly displays poor or weak leadership etc, the easiest way is to sit them down and explain to them that if they leave they can have a GLOWING referece.
    In other words unload them onto some other LA 250 miles away?

    I wonder if the LA or Governors carried out these checks or believed a glowing reference ?
    What made them choose him above other applicants?
    Who was on the selection panel ?
