YOUR front page story on February 2, Schools Must Do Better, makes me think that the establishment of a free school in Stoke-by-Nayland is very important.
The excuses for the poor performance of the area’s current schools were unworthy of professional people.
The comments about rising standards of English and maths are highly unlikely to be true. You only have to listen to the young of the area to know that the English curriculum does not contain any lessons in elocution.
A pole of excellence on either side of Sudbury/Cornard appears to be the best way to jog the town’s schools out of their complacency.
Clare is in place; let us hope that the much desired free school in Stoke-by-Nayland materialises – and as soon as possible!
