Compelling listening on R4 The Untold

The “Untold” on Radio 4 this morning looked at the impact on a Head-teacher whose Oxford primary school had been put into special measures.

An insight into the effects behind the headlines including  when she took up her post, 13 of her 15 teaching staff were new that term, and the previous Yr 5 children had had 21 teachers in the course of an academic year!

Certainly compelling listening about leadership, management and overcoming red tape though come the end of the piece, the Head-teacher in question sounded completely exhausted and you have to wonder how long it will take her to regain confidence in her own abilities.
