Burnham and Highbridge MP 'reassured' by visit to King Alfred School

Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge's MP James Heappey says he is 'reassured' about King Alfred School's plans for the future after meeting the management team following its latest Ofsted report.

Mr Heappey has met with Headteacher Denise Hurr, Executive Headteacher John Wells, and Chair of Governors Hugh Mackay to discuss its plans following the 'Inadequate' Ofsted rating last month.

He told that he's pleased that a sound plan is already in place.

"It was very disappointing to read the Ofsted report on King Alfred School and, clearly, significant improvement is required. I was briefed by the Chair of Governors, Executive Headteacher and Headteacher on the plans for that improvement and I am reassured by the visit."

"All share the understanding that King Alfred School has educated generations of Burnham and Highbridge young people and that it is hugely important that the community unites behind our school and supports the leadership in delivering the improvement our young people deserve."
