The Cornelius Vermuyden School, in Dinant Avenue, Canvey has been ordered to improve by Ofsted.
As part of a critical report, inspectors raised concerns about lessons being repeated.
“A culture of reading is not established and systems to improve the reading skills of the weakest pupils are in early stages.
“Too many pupils are not able to fully access the curriculum because of a low reading ability.”Translation: They are neglected at home.
I could read and write before I was in school, because my parents and grandparents taught me.
I didn't have 'behavioural issues', either:
It adds: “Behaviour, although improving, is not yet good enough. Pupils are prevented from learning in too many lessons due to the poor behaviour of a minority of pupils.
“Teachers are not consistently using the behaviour systems to manage their classrooms and some need further support and training.”Or sacking.
The academy, which was rated as ‘good’ in May 2015, was, however, praised for safeguarding the pupils.From what..?
