    Contact Links Sharma slams council attitude to schools as utterly complacent Alok Sharma the Member of Parliament for Reading West has condemned Reading Borough Council s response to a critical report published by Ofsted as complacent and has accused the local authority of failing local children Ofsted has today published a critical report of Reading Borough Council which has found that too many schools in Reading are inadequate and the number is growing Following the focused inspection of 10 of the 56 schools in Reading in October 2014 Ofsted has found that only one school had improved since its last inspection and three schools had declined Two of these had declined so significantly that they now require special measures Concerns arising from the focused inspection include too many schools are inadequate and this number is growing there is too much variability in the quality of support that schools receive from local authority officers schools are not improving at a sufficiently rapid rate not enough schools are good or outstanding and too many pupils attend schools that do not provide at least a good standard of education the local authority is not able to demonstrate enough of an impact on improving the effectiveness of schools and academies Alok Sharma said I was astonished to read the utterly complacent response from Reading Borough Council to this highly critical report by Ofsted The schools inspector has made clear that urgent action is required and I am totally unconvinced that the Council has any specific plans to improve the support it is offering to schools Alok continued This is a wakeup call to the Council that they are failing local children and local parents and their response so far has been to shuffle the deck chairs in its senior management and to spin the

  • Sharma disappointed by council refusal to sign up to government broadband scheme | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    be administered through existing payment mechanisms and staff to keep costs to a minimum Of the 50 cities that were invited to take part in this government programme 49 have accepted the funding including Oxford and Swindon Reading Borough Council is currently the only authority to be refusing this funding By March this year it is expected that 10 000 companies will have had grants approved and in locations where grants have already been approved businesses have been experiencing speeds on average seven times faster for downloads and fifteen times faster uploads In a letter to the Council s Managing Director Alok has called on the Council to urgently reconsider its position so that Reading s businesses can benefit from the government funding In 2013 Alok arranged a visit by Maria Miller the former Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport to Abbey Windows a business in Portman Road as part of a campaign to secure faster broadband speeds in Reading Alok Sharma said This is another sorry example of a Labour council that just does not understand business I have been lobbying the Government for a number of years to introduce a scheme to help businesses get access to superfast broadband in Reading so it is incredibly disappointing that the council are now rejecting the help on offer and I really hope they will reconsider their position Small and medium sized businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy and we should be doing everything we can to help them succeed The text of Alok s letter to Ian Wardle Managing Director of Reading Borough Council is below Dear Ian I understand from recent discussions with the Department for Culture Media and Sport DCMS that Reading Borough Council has refused the opportunity to receive a share of a new 40 million government fund to provide grants to help small and medium sized businesses get access to superfast broadband I have been lobbying the Government for a great deal of time to include Reading in programmes to boost access to superfast broadband and to do more to help businesses get connected In April 2013 I even arranged for Maria Miller the former Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport to visit Abbey Windows a small business located on Portman Road in my constituency so that she could hear first hand about the issues they were having with slow broadband speeds It is therefore incredibly disappointing that the council are now rejecting an excellent opportunity to take part in the Super Connected Cities programme which would provide exactly the kind of help that I have been calling for As part of the programme each SME can get up to 3 000 to put towards installation costs in the form of a grant This money can even be pooled with other businesses to get a better deal from suppliers meaning that the scheme would be particularly helpful to connect business parks where there are clusters of interested businesses such as
