Falmouth School's head has stepped down after 15 years of service.

An email was sent to parents today detailing some of the changes planned for the start of the year after the school's recent 'inadequate' Ofsted report.

Among these changes was the announcement of Falmouth MAT CEO and school head Brett Miners' departure as well as changes to behaviour management, special needs support and complaints.

The school has also announced the end of its controversial 'inclusion' policy which parents say punished children harshly for trivial offences.

Deputy headteacher Alex George will be taking over as interim head of the school. A new CEO is also being sought.

The email sent today details how the school is beginning a wide consultation on new complaints and behaviour policies ahead of the children's return to school on Thursday.

Details of the new policies can be read in full here.

In the email, a school spokesperson said: "Over the holiday period and after 15 years at Falmouth School, currently as CEO of Falmouth Multi-Academy Trust, Brett Miners has decided to leave the organisation with immediate effect.

"As a new Board of Trustees is now in place, Brett considers this is the right time for a new leader to work with the Board and undertake the challenges moving forward.

"We would like to thank Brett for his immense contribution during his time with the organisation and wish him well for the next chapter of his career."

Falmouth School has been contacted for a comment.
