A school in Forest Gate has been featured in the latest Parliamentary Review.
The review is a guide which highlights good practice in various industries, with an edition for each industry. It’s sent to half a million policy makers and industry leaders in a bid to raise standards.
Shaftesbury Primary School was featured in the primary school edition, for its strong leadership and ability to tackle challenges posed by a multicultural student population.
Writing in the review, headteacher Geoff Hadlow explained how he tackled an attitude of “obstruction, disruption and passive aggression” towards leadership, by changing the staff.
In 2013, the school was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, only for it to be reevaluated to ‘requires improvement’ five weeks later.
