The Berkshire Coroner has found that an Ofsted inspection contributed to the death of primary school head teacher, Ruth Perry. Ruth Perry took her own life in January while waiting for an Ofsted report which downgraded her school to be published.

The family issued a statement following the verdict.

Hugh Southey KC and James Robottom were instructed on behalf of the Perry family by Marcia Willis Stewart KC (Hons) and Hazel Metcalfe of Birnberg Peirce.
