HC Deb 19 June 1989 vol 155 cc18-9W
Sir Michael McNair-Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether a notice of complaint was served on the proprietor of Crookham Court school following Her Majesty's inspector's report of 1981 and of 1988 relating(a) to the inspection, (b) to the fire precautions or (c) to any member of the staff.

Mr. Butcher

Her Majesty's inspectors carried out two full inspections of Crookham Court school, in November 1981 and in November 1987. On both occasions, a number of deficiencies were identified in the report. These deficiencies and recommendations for improvement were brought to the attention of the school in strongly worded official letters which accompanied the reports rather than through a formal notice of complaint. Recently many parents have chosen to remove their children from the school.
