  6. Cornish school put into special measures after best GCSE results

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    A Cornish school which achieved its best GCSE results ever in 2016 has been put into special measures.

    Ofsted reports all aspects of Cape Cornwall School in St Just are either inadequate or need improvement and disadvantaged children significantly underachieve.

    Ofsted does praise the school for being inclusive, welcoming and integral to the community and adds history and English are strong. 

    But weak teaching in other subjects, truancy rates above the national average, the behaviour of a small number of pupils and the failure of the governors to question underperfomance with enough vigour are criticised. 

    In a letter to parents Executive Head Jan Woodhouse - who started in September - said:

    Quote Message: Our key priorities are to improve the quality of teaching across all subjects, and ensure that students [especially disadvantaged students] fully engage in lessons with the activities. We also need to improve attendance and we would ask for support from every parent in making sure their child attends school on every day possible." from Jan Woodhouse Executive Head
