My week ahead 24 - 30 March 2014

Monday – 24 March, 4pm Culture Portfolio meeting
6pm Labour Group

Tuesday – 25 March, 5pm Sidegate Primary Full Governing Body

Thursday – 27 March, 5pm Area Committee Chairs meeting
7pm – Ipswich Labour Party meeting

Saturday 29 March, 10am – Labour campaigning – South East Ipswich

It will be a rather unusual and slightly sad meeting at Sidgate Primary School this week,. It will be the last ever Full Governing Body meeting before the school becomes an Academy.

I have always felt we were being forced into becoming an academy and the way both the Department of Education and Suffolk County Council have behaved in the process leaves a rather sour taste in the mouth.

But in the end, I believe the school will be better off working with the Active Learning Trust as over the last few months we have seen Tory run Suffolk fail in their responsibility to assist in the education of our children.

Even Ofsted have been critical of the County but they yet again choose to ignore the critical Ofsted report and continue with the myth that ‘Raising the Bar’ will be the answer to all the questions being asked about educational attainment in Suffolk.
