Ofsted inspectors had plenty to keep them busy in March, with schools in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire being regularly inspected. Some were praised for efforts in improving standards, while other were criticised and warned to make changes. During their visit inspectors will look at four main areas: the achievement of pupils; the quality of teaching; the behaviour and safety of pupils; and the leadership and management. The four rating categories are: outstanding; good; requires improvement; or inadequate. The inspector will then grade the school's 'overall effectiveness'. Every month in 2019 we will publish the results of each school whose inspection result was published, along with a summary of what the experts had to say. You can find January's here. You can find February's here.

Plans for a £5.5 million maritime centre in Porthcawl with a coastal science and discovery centre, a cafe, wine bar, roof terrace and micro brewery will go before councillors on Thursday, November 22, for approval. The complex to be built on the town’s Cosy Corner by the Esplanade has changed from a bigger, more expensive version that received planning permission in 2016. The original version involved a £7 million project with a curved building and a large amount of glass which resulted in the project going above European funding spend cap requirements. The new development plans – submitted by Credu Charity Ltd – are dependent on European and Big Lottery funding. Officers say permission is a vital step in being able to secure the funding. Under the plans the main building which is four to five storeys high would be around 37m in length and 18m in width. It would incorporate a Sea Quest Coastal Science and Discovery Centre, conference facilities, a … [Read more...] about £5.5m plans for new maritime centre in Porthcawl resurface
During its recent military exercises, NATO troops were supposed to fight a 'hypothetical adversary' that invades Norway. But is the scenario based on military and political reality, or is the threat posed by Russia exaggerated? Trident Juncture took place in the sea off the Norwegian coast and on land from October 25 to November 7. Around 50,000 troops from 31 countries, 250 aircraft, 65 vessels, and over 10,000 vehicles were involved in the large-scale endeavor. Read more According to the scenario, NATO forces were defending Norway from "Murinus" (Latin for 'spider') – a "fictional near-peer adversary on the northeastern flank of the Alliance". In order to liberate the occupied territories, NATO forces had to deploy troops by sea, as well as conducting amphibious landings and airstrikes. NATO's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg claimed that the exercises were not directed against any specific country, but it was "important to show that we are able to … [Read more...] about Can Russia invade Norway or is NATO wasting money in preparation for an attack?
