8th May, 1987: PARENTS’ PRESSURE WINS EXTRA TEACHER

GAINSBOROUGH MP Edward Leigh has been able to advise parents of pupils at Scotter Primary School that there will be an extra teacher at the school from September.

After pressure from parents, Mr Leigh sent on their letters to Lincolnshire County Council Chief Executive Dudley Proctor and has now been advised of the new post allocated to the school.

Mr Proctor told Mr Leigh that staffing calculations were based on the highest anticipated number of school-age pupils on roll in the academic year, and Scotter by July 1988 would have 321 pupils. He said this had meant the extra teaching post being established and will enable classes of fewer than 30 to be maintained.
