LETTER: ‘Free school meals’ statement was insulting

I was reading the article “Education Pendle”, in the Nelson Leader, Friday, November 26th on page 15, headed, “Ofsted says school is making good progress”, about the inspection at Sacred Heart Primary School and one of the paragraphs stated, “In the 2011 national tests for 11-year-olds, the results in reading and writing were slightly above the national figure and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals performed as well as their classmates.”
