Head surprised by Ofsted inspection results
The head teacher of Sir John Cass Foundation and Red Coat Church of England secondary school, in Tower Hamlets, has expressed his surprise at the Ofsted inspection which has put the school into special measures. In a report which will be published today, Ofsted will raise concerns over safeguarding at the school. Headteacher Haydn Evans said: "We are surprised by the outcome of the Ofsted inspection, as we have always taken safeguarding very seriously. The teaching and results of this school remain good - and my priority now is to address the issues identified and work closely with the local authority and the diocese to return the school as quickly as possible to an outstanding school." Ofsted’s report is also expected to raise concerns about six Muslim faith schools in Tower Hamlets.
