THE full extent of the inadequacies at St Benedict’s School in Whitehaven have finally been revealed – 10 weeks after the Ofsted inspection was carried out.
Have your say
Sad to hear of this from an ex-pupil's point of view who has always had nothing but good to relate about my time there. How has it all went wrong?
Dont go tarnishing all the teachers with the same brush - they are some exceptional teachers who do not get the recognition they deserve - in fact they get more work put on them whilst the underperforming ones get away with it.
The school doesnt need much, to much protecting of disobedient kids and not enough support and to emphasis on targets..and employ more teachers!!! to many teachers with more on than they should...
A teacher can only do so much, the parents have a lot to answer for as well...
I for one am not surprised at the recent findings. I removed my daughter from the school because of the lack of control the teachers had over the kids. My daughter was systematically bullied over a period of months and the teachers failed to address the problem. Instead, when her grades started slipping, they in turn made matters worse by being unsupportive and critical. The school is nothing like it was when I attended in the 1980's. Bring in new blood and get rid of the current weak-minded management.
