Primary school placed in 'special measures'

A failing school has two years to turn itself around or it could be closed.

St Luke's School, in Cookham Road, Maidenhead, has been placed in 'special measures' after a scathing review by Ofsted.

The inspection body blamed years of 'weak leadership, low staff morale and a culture of low achievement' for the primary school's decline.

Headteacher Amanda Hough, who started three weeks before the review, has pledged swift improvement.

A privately run pre-school on the site was not subject to this inspection.
