Havering Council Statement: Sanders School

Published: Thursday, 21st September 2017

A Havering Council Spokesperson, said: “The Council is proposing to appoint an Interim Executive Board (IEB) to lead the future improvement of Sanders School. 

This decision has not been taken lightly, but after a series of disappointing Ofsted inspections, and a lack of progress towards improving standards, we have a duty to take action.

“The role of the IEB is to challenge the leadership of the school to secure rapid improvement. This includes: management of the budget, curriculum, staffing and pay, and the appointment of the Headteacher.

“We are working closely with the Department for Education, and Regional Schools Commissioner in our statutory duty to ensure all schools in Havering receive the right support to deliver the best possible education for our students.”
