Success marred by Sats no-show

17th September 2004 at 01:00
We are celebrating the great success of our recent inspection. However, we are disappointed and angry that we have still not received our key stage 2 English Sats results. The official line is that the papers remain unmarked and are lost within the Parcelforce system. Upset pupils and parents contact us daily but have no news for them. What a disgrace.
