THE Conservative Education spokesman has reacted to the news that Tilbury Manor will be placed into special measures.
Cllr Halden said “To be told that a school is failing children is beyond tragic. It is clear that Ofsted have good reason to put Tilbury Manor into special measures.
However, yet again Tilbury residents and Thurrock Conservatives are left asking “where is the political leadership been on this issue and who will actually take the blame for this failure?”
“Time and time again Conservatives have said that we need to look past the old model of council support, and help our stronger schools support our weaker ones.
“All the time Thurrock Labour has been spouting “we’re on the way up” they are forgetting that schools and pupils need help from other education professionals, not from the council.
“Unfortunately Thurrock’s Labour approach to education has let the children and parents of Tilbury Manor time and time again”.
