The spokesman also criticised Ofsted for measuring the school in Meadow Road against grammar schools in the area, which select their students based on academic achievement.Yup. St George’s CofE School in Gravesend is advancing the suggestion that it isn't fair to measure them against normal standards when the grammar schools have creamed off the brighter pupils, and they are left with the dregs...
He said: “It is most unjust to use a national framework to judge schools in Gravesend, where the educational provision is so diverse.
“In an area where there are successful selective schools, it is unfair to expect non-selective schools to reach the same targets as in areas where all schools are comprehensive.
Oh, boy. Wouldn't want to be a representative of the school on the next Parent's Day, would you?
But don't they have a point?
