Having just read this week’s Ripley & Heanor News I thought you should realise that not all parents are happy with Heanor Gate Science College.

Here’s a copy of the email I sent to Ofsted following their recent inspection: “Having read your recent Inspection report dated 4/5 Nov - Heanor Gate Science College I would like to raise the following queries -There still seems to be a long way to go on some key issues.

What is the rationale for coming out of special measures as teaching comments are a concern for many parents ?

Can we have a visibility/accountability plan to show metrics/status on the specific items during the next 24 months To many parents there is a sense of something still not being right at the school as many comments in your report are confusing, particularly around leadership.

-A very concerned parent
