The report, dated June 2019, states: (my bold print) "Last year, however, virtually all pupils in Year 11 were entered for an English language qualification marketed clearly as a qualification for pupils or adults who speak English as an additional language. This was despite the fact 95 per cent of the cohort spoke English as their first language. Year 12 students who took the qualification last year said they did not know why they were entered and received little teaching in preparation. Current leaders acknowledge that the mass-entry to this qualification, initiated by leaders who have left since the academy, was inappropriate. Governors have ensured that this practice has stopped." Absolutely appalling: I wonder if they have picked up other jobs and are now cheating at other schools?. At least I can be sure that our own HT wouldn't hire them. "Inappropriate"? I'll say! How often nowadays do we see that woolly word used instead of "wrong", "cheating", "illegal", "crooked" or "dishonest".
