The executive headteacher of the Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Northampton says he believes the school has “turned a corner” despite Ofsted inspectors giving it an “inadequate” rating.

Following a visit by the Government education watchdog in January, the school has been placed in special measures.

Mark Wilson, executive headteacher at The Good Shepherd Primary School, said: “While I believe a corner has been turned, when it comes to school improvements, there are no quick fixes.

“What I can assure everyone in our community is that I am confident we have the expertise, dedication and commitment to enable us to reach our goals and ambitions as quickly as possible. Many of the issues raised do not come as a surprise.”
