Councillor Hannah Clare, Green opposition spokesperson for Children, Young People and Skills, commented:
“News that a further OFSTED inspection will take place at Moulsecoomb Primary school is yet another example of the strength and determination of the parent-led, anti-academy campaign – which is pushing for Moulsecoomb Primary to gain the recognition it deserves. Greens have been proud to play our part in this.
“Far from being ‘inadequate,’ – we know that Moulsecoomb Primary is in fact a well-loved school at the heart of its community, offering so much to pupils and the local area.
“While we remain critical of OFSTED, we recognise that improved OFSTED results have, in certain cases, stopped the process of forced academisation. We are hopeful the inspection will be a good sign – and Green Councillors will continue to stand with the community and demand that Moulsecoomb Primary remain part of the city’s family of schools.”
