Local Head To Help Loders' School After 'Inadequate OFSTED'


Published at 2:30pm 19th January 2015. (Updated at 1:49pm 20th January 2015)

The headteacher of Powerstock school, Jean-Paul Draper, is to work with existing senior teachers at Loders C of E primary, which has just seen its OFSTED ranking collapse from 'Outstanding' to 'Inadequate'.

Yesterday quotes from a letter by Loders' chair of governors to parents were leaked to Wessex FM before the report's official publication.

Phillip Minns, health of inclusion and learning at Dorset County Council said:

"While it is unfortunate that Loders Primary School was judged to be inadequate last November, we know they are keen to improve.

"The school are already working to address the issues identified by the inspection. We want high standards in all schools and will give Loders Primary School all the help they need to become the great school we know they can be."

The Diocese of Salisbury gave Wessex FM this statement:

'The Diocese of Salisbury is aware that the impending Ofsted Report into Loders Primary School is likely to be challenging.

As the full report is yet to be released, and the Diocese has not seen its contents, it cannot comment further at this time.

The Diocesan Board of Education will offer an appropriate and substantial programme of support to the school once the report is released'.
