Pupils might not be able to go to school during the strike

Reports on eight of the 10 schools featured in the Ofsted blitz in Medway have been released.
Education officials announced today (Thursday) that six require improvement while two have been rated good.
Those needing to improve are: the Bishop of Rochester Academy, Chatham; Stoke Primary, Thames View Primary, Rainham; Fairview Primary, Wigmore; Walderslade Primary and Napier Primary, Gillingham.
The two with a good ranking are Strood Academy and All Faiths Primary in Strood.
Inspectors spent a week visiting schools in Medway where Year 6 results are the worst in the country.
Last summer, 28% of Medway’s pupils in their final year of primary education failed to reach the recommended level 4 in English and maths.
The team also contacted several other schools to test their relationship with Medway Council.
Schools chief Cllr Mike O’Brien said the council would: “continue working with all schools across the area to help drive through further improvement and to give all the help it can.”
One of the other two schools inspected was Chatham Grammar for Boys which is contesting what is thought to be a critical report from Ofsted.
