Government Set Date For Scilly School Investigation
The Department for Education has confirmed that its investigators will be arriving in Scilly on 5th November.
They’ll be investigating complaints against the local authority and school governing body regarding procedures at the Five Islands School and the discipline and suspension of staff.
They’ll also be looking at the relationship between the local authority, governors and management and how effectively the school has been run.
Tom Peryer, an Education Adviser for the Department, will lead the investigation.
The DfE has said they’re aware that there is considerable interest in the investigation and will consider how their report’s conclusions can be made available to the public.
