Great news; Nansen Primary and Rockwood Academy, formerly Park View, have both been removed from Special Measures and are now rated “good” by Ofsted.
Here’s my statement:

 

“This is great news for both Nansen and Rockwood Academy and recognises the hard work of so many at the schools and in our local community.”

“Our priority has always been securing a world-class education for our kids – they deserve nothing less. I want to congratulate Fuzel Choudhury at Rockwood and Cath Rindl at Nansen on this achievement – but above all I want to say a big well done to parents and students for working so hard and doing so well.”
