A headteacher, who vowed to change the fortunes of a primary school rated inadequate by Ofsted inspectors within a year, will not be returning "for a period of time".
Emma Kelty joined Knollmead Primary School in Tolworth last September, weeks after inspectors visited the school and placed it in a category of concern with several "serious weaknesses". In October, Ms Kelty gave an interview to the Surrey Comet in which she pledged to turn Knollmead into an outstanding school within a year of her headship.
Public health officials have come under fire over the proposed move of a wellbeing service, including a needle exchange, for people struggling with substance abuse.
The service, currently housed in Surbiton Health Centre in Ewell Road and in Acre Road, Kingston, could move to Hollyfield House in Hollyfield Road, Surbiton. But residents are concerned too few people were consulted on the plans. Kingston Council said it sent out 50 letters on August 11, in the same “designated area” recently consulted on planning changes at Hollyfield House.
