Rob has written an update to local residents on the process to find a permanent location for the Heights Primary School.
"I was very concerned to read the OFSTED letter to Reading Borough Council about primary schools in Reading. Both as the local MP and as a parent, I am disappointed and angry that local schools are failing over 25% of children – that is more than 3,500 young people in schools that are not good enough."
Rob is deeply concerned about Reading Borough Council’s failure to improve local primary schools, following a letter from OFSTED criticising the performance of primary schools across Reading, focusing mostly on local authority run schools and Reading Council itself.
