Lindsey School in special measures
POOR teaching and leadership has plunged a third Cleethorpes school into the Government's special measures in as many years.
In an official Ofsted report released yesterday about the Lindsey School and Community Arts College, inspectors from the Government watchdog said:
driving forwards: Looking towards a more positive future are acting headteacher Jim Cunningham (left) and Peter Kipling, vice-chairman of the Interim Executive Board.
There are too many occasions when lessons are not planned sufficiently.
The school is failing to give its 837 pupils an acceptable standard of education and the persons responsible for leading, managing or governing the school are not demonstrating the capacity to secure the necessary improvement in the school.

Students enter the school with attainment that is broadly average and when they leave their attainment is low.
The proportion of students who gained five A* to G or one A* to G grades was significantly below average. This means that a significant proportion of students leave school with no qualifications.
Today interim headteacher Jim Cunningham said improvements have already been made – and has pledged to drive the school forward. It will now be closely monitored by Ofsted.
