  14. This news is welcome, especialy since the sister school, Nishkam Primary School was rated :requires improvement in all inspection areas in its earlier ofsted inspection which lead to the resignation of the head teacher Narinder Brach. ther is still no new head teacher in situ This came without any pre-warning to parents, hopefully now they can move forward.
