Amid rumours that some MHKs have already been carpeted by the dissent-phobic Council of Ministers, for not saying the right things after last week’s sudden announcement, it is worth remembering that, last year, Tynwald spent all of six minutes and 20 seconds on public consideration of the Steam Packet’s offer over a new sea services agreement.This time, the government only deemed it worthy of informing the public of its plans to buy the Steam Packet just seven days before Tynwald was due to vote, and only then after the plan was splashed all over the front page of the Isle of Man Examiner last week. It wasn’t on the original agenda for today’s Tynwald sitting.There is serious disquiet about the lack of detail over the deal - and the £124 … [Read more...] about Paul Speller’s political preview: How much will they say about the proposal to buy the Steam Packet?

One in five teachers have said their school has been forced to ask parents for financial contributions to help with funding, a new survey has found. And in some cases parents are being asked to fork out hundreds of pounds over a school year to plug the gap, the research suggested. The new poll, of 900 members of the National Education Union (NEU), comes amid continuing concerns about a squeeze on school budgets. But ministers have insisted that more money is going into schools.

A Beverley school has been told to improve following a two-day inspection by Ofsted. Beverley Minster Church of England Primary, which received a 'good' rating at its previous inspection, 'requires improvement' in five inspection areas. It has been given a 'good' mark for early years provision. Inspectors say in their report: “Leaders are overgenerous in their view of how well the school is performing and are not sufficiently rigorous in checking the progress of all groups of pupils across all subjects, particularly for disadvantaged pupils and boys. “Standards in reading, writing and mathematics are too low at the end of key stage 1. “Pupils do not make enough progress in writing and mathematics by the end of key stage 2.” Headteacher Rachel Hatter is confident improvements already introduced will help make the 371-pupil Beverley primary a "good" school again. She says: “Issues raised in the report are already being addressed, and measures are planned to … [Read more...] about Ofsted says this school is not as good as it thinks it is
