I visited Freebrough Academy today to discuss the school turnaround plan with the new leadership team there. In my short video I explain the key issues.
Thank you to everyone who gave feedback on my post earlier this week, which was really helpful. For those of you who emailed me with specific concerns, I passed those on to Mr Robson, who will be the new Head Teacher from Monday, so that he can follow up with you directly.
As I set out in my video, I will return to Freebrough in six weeks’ time to get an update on progress.
I have one final message from Mr Robson. On Monday, new rules will be in place around wearing proper uniform, mobiles being switched off and no makeup and jewellery being worn – which is all a key part of getting the right culture in place. These rules will be observed strictly. As parents and guardians, please support these new rules and make sure students arrive at school properly dressed.
