Stratford approved

9th February 1996 at 00:00
The first grant-maintained school found to be failing to provide adequate education, Stratford in the London borough of Newham, is now providing value for money, according to the Office for Standards in Education.

Stratford is only the second secondary school to be removed from the list of schools requiring special measures. When it was first inspected in November 1993, it had poor exam results and a Pounds 140,000 deficit. The latest inspection report finds that the quality of learning was satisfactory or better in over two-thirds of lessons. Exam results have also improved.
