Failing heads to be sacked says PM

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has announced new proposals which could result in headteachers and governors of failing schools being sacked.

The extra powers, which include measures to impose tough classroom discipline, are part of Conservative plans to rescue 500 failing English schools.

The plans also include forming an elite team of "super teachers" who can rescue schools that are performing badly.

Writing directly to parents, he said: "Taking my four-year-old daughter Florence to school for the first time is something I won't forget. But what gave me peace of mind, what made it a little easier to walk away, was knowing that Florence is being taught at a brilliant state primary school.”

Tonmoy Kumar, Manager of the Accounts Department of ABDS and an active school governor comments:
“The Conservatives say that up to 100,000 youngsters would be able to receive a better education if their proposals are put in place. The "rescue package", which will be put together with the help of experts, will be included in the party's general election manifesto.”

The statement follows on from a number of problems in schools that have hit the headlines.

The Al Madinah School in Derby and the Discovery New School in Crawley, West Sussex, were both recently forced to close, and in Birmingham, the so-called "Trojan Horse" letter led Ofsted to issue a damning verdict on a number of the city's schools.

Shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt said: "I have announced that Labour will introduce new local Directors of School Standards to provide rigorous oversight of all state schools, spotting and acting on problems before it is too late.
