Tristram Hunt MP and Labour's Shadow Education Secretary has responded to the publication of the Ofsted inspection into IES Breckland Free School.
This is more evidence of the damage David cameron's Free School policy is doing to school standards. The lack of local oversight and a policy that allows unqualified teachers into classrooms on a permanent basis is the wrong approach."
IES Breckland is the first school run for profit in Britain. IES (International English Schools) is a Swedish company which runs a chain of for profit schools in Sweden.
In 2012 the company won a ten year contract from the government to run a free school in Brandon.
This contract will pay the school a maximum of £21million. The Operating Manager of IES Sweden Peter John Files took questions from ITV News Anglia earlier this week about what mistakes the company had made, and whether IES owed parents an apology for such a damning Ofsted report.
A flagship free school in Suffolk has been branded inadequate by the education watchdog, Ofsted and put into special measures.
ITV News Anglia has learned that IES Breckland, the high school at Brandon, was praised just a few months ago by the Department for Education.
But an inspection by Ofsted in January which will be published later this week takes a very different view. It says the teaching was inadequate, students were not making progress and some lessons were disrupted by bad behaviour.

Britain's first for profit school has been placed in special measures by Ofsted.
I has been judged inadequate. The Suffolk school was inspected in January.
A report which is due to be published on Thursday by OFSTED will say the IES Breckland in Brandon school is inadequate. The Suffolk Free School has been open for 15 months and replaced Breckland Middle School.
The headteacher says the school is already taking action to improve. If you are a parent we'd like to hear from you, email us at email@example.com or contact us via Facebook or Twitter.
