Schoolchildren in Swindon are being failed at every level of their education, according to the region's chief inspector. In a damning assessment, Ofsted's Bradley Simmons says what he's uncovered gives 'cause for serious concern'.
He says rather than tackle its problems, the local authority has only tried to defend itself against any criticism. Mr Simmons has written a letter making sure all the key parties are aware of the concerns.
