Pupils at Huddersfield’s largest primary school are not being fully prepared for life in modern Britain, according to Ofsted inspectors.
Really? Why not?
The Crosland Moor school, which has around 1,000 pupils, ‘requires improvement’ in key areas including teaching, behaviour, leadership and the outcomes of pupils, Ofsted has ruled.
In order to improve learning, all members of staff must use “grammatically accurate standard English when speaking”.
No, that’s preparing them for a life of trying to decipher unintelligible announcements on public transport tannoy systems, and receiving cold calls from call centres in the Third World, and visiting their local A&E…
In some subjects – including history, geography and personal/social education – lessons “do not equip pupils with sufficient knowledge of different cultures or of concepts, such as respect and tolerance. Hence, pupils are not as well prepared for life in modern Britain as they should be.“
Ah, bless! He thinks there’s still ‘respect and tolerance’ in the UK! He’ll learn. As will the kiddiewinks.
