Ofsted inspector says behaviour improving at Colne School
A headteacher has been praised for taking “decisive action” to turn around the fortunes of a school plunged into special measures six months ago.
The Colne Community School in Brightlingsea was rated inadequate across the board after a damning Ofsted report in May.
Inspectors found safeguarding was ineffective, bullying was prevalent and pupils’ progress was poor.
Neil Gallagher, principal of Clacton County High School, was drafted in as interim headteacher in June.
Ofsted inspector Christine Dick visited the school again in November and found safeguarding at the school was now effective and behaviour was improving.
