...and it is these same '***' that are trying to make this school work. There is another perspective, in which the school has been, still is (despite the debacle) and could be - a fabulous learning community with a dedicated staff force (clearly something drives them on), extremely supportive parents and inspirational pupils. This is what makes people stay - people who believe they CAN make it work. People that should be applauded and supported - not slated. However, I would not want any new staff, leaving home and chasing a dream that has been dressed up with tinsel and fairy lights. That dream is definitely not in this school and I find it immoral that staff are being recruited into these conditions.
