Carlisle's Richard Rose academy schools to shed 50 more jobs
Last updated at 15:41, Tuesday, 28 February 2012
Staff at Carlisle’s two Richard Rose academies have been dealt a fresh blow with news that around 50 jobs – approximately a sixth of the workforce – are to go by the summer.
Have your say
Simon, teachers can only perform well if given the support and the environment to perform. Are teachers under-performing if they spend hours marking books each week, planning lessons, running revision classes and extra - curricular activities?
If a heart is so diseased that the person can not be saved does this mean that the surgeon is under - performing?
Are the Trustees supporting the present management - even with the awful results? Why isn't Ofsted going into these academies which are in the bottom two hundred in the country?
A root and branch clear out of all management is needed to give the children a fresh start with Heads who have real educational experience. Surely the Governors and Trustees have some responsibility for allowing things to get to this stage.
Many Poor performing teachers at both academies in carlisle. im suprised not one third are being laid off.
