Various staff, students and members of the school management team were interviewed as part of this review, further details can be found on page 7 of the report. Please see link above. The exact numbers have not been recorded.
The review team consisted of five reviewers. Four of the team are senior advisers and the other an education adviser from the Department for Children, Young People, Education and Skills. The review was led by a senior adviser who is an experienced off-island inspector.
The Department have determined that to disclose the names of the team responsible for carrying out the inspection, would likely breach the privacy of the individuals involved and therefore, Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) 2011 Law has been applied.
There was no additional financial cost as the review was carried out by Children, Young People, Education and Skills department as part of their usual business.
The Government of Jersey does not place schools in special measures, and there is no category in its Framework for special measures.
