Watchdog praises new Head at Monkwick Junior School
Education watchdog Ofsted has praised a headteacher and a school trust for turning a school around.
Monkwick Junior School in Colchester became part of the Sigma Trust in September 2016.
It was previously said to “require improvement” – the third grade out of four – and while the overall rating has not changed, Ofsted inspectors have praised the progress made.
New headteacher Rebecca McCutcheon started at the school in September last year along with a new deputy headteacher and two assistant head teachers.
