Parents Defend Dorset Schools

Inner city schools are no longer among the worst achieving in England.

Ofsted's chief inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw says the problem's shifting to coastal towns and rural areas.

He'd like to see an army of top teachers drafted into failing schools to help turn things around.

Sir Michael Wilshaw might think that kids living in market towns and seaside resorts are being let down by the education system - but it looks like you don't agree.

You've been telling us what you think of schools in Dorset on our facebook page.

Dawn Dovell says the schools here are great - my kids go to Chickerell Primary - they're happy and doing really well - I wouldn't change it.

Karen Berry has three boys one with special needs - they all went to Damers Road First School in Dorchester and she says they all thrived and are doing exceptionally well.

And Gemma Nokes says - I used to go to a big school in Essex and moved to Dorset 7 years ago - and I can honestly say I don't think I'd be where I am today without Loders Primary!
