Troubled Rudolf Steiner School is to close

 Published on: 20th June 2018   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Rudolf Steiner in Kings Langley is to close, it has been confirmed.

The school has been beset with problems since the School Inspection Service carried out an emergency inspection following a number of complaints made by parents in 2016. Ofsted then found the school to be inadequate.

It failed a further monitoring inspection earlier this year.

A statement released by the trustees reads: “A majority of members at an RSSKL Association meeting voted for a non-binding resolution to undertake a managed voluntary closure of the school.”

“Over the next few days the new Board of Trustees will be exploring the options, taking into account the best interests of pupils, parents and staff during this time.”

“While we disagreed with some of the elements of the recent Ofsted report, it also identified weaknesses that we acknowledge fell below the high standards that parents are right to expect. The circumstances in which this occurred have contributed to a significant strain on the school’s financial resources, such that voluntary managed closure is the most appropriate option.”
