Following the inspection by Her Majesty's Inspectors (HMI) in the Office for Standards in Education (OFSTED), two schools have been judged to be failing to provide their pupils with an acceptable standard of education.
Each school - Crook Primary School, Durham and Brookside Special School, Derby - was inspected earlier this term by a team of HMI assisted by trainee registered inspectors. The inspection took place under Section 3(1) of the Education (Schools) Act 1992.
The provision in these schools fell short of being acceptable and therefore, under the Education Act 1993, the schools were judged to be failing.
The schools will now become subject to the conditions in the 1993 act for schools requiring special measures. The particular conditions will be decided by the Secretary of State for Education.
