Denise Burke, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for North Norfolk writes:
I have been a school governor for nearly 30 years. In all that time I have never witnessed the shenanigans and secrecy surrounding Stalham Academy.
The Junior school became an academy on May 1st run by the Right for Success Trust after it fell into special measures in March.
The new interim Executive Board appears to be made up of individuals associated with the trust and none of the original governors remain. The headteacher seems to have disappeared.
Parents are understandably concerned about their children’s education.
Communication from the trust has been poor and the lack of transparency is only adding to the ambiguity of the situation.
Will the trust turn up at the next Stalham Town Council meeting on 7th July to explain the schools future?
