In this week’s Express we report how a damning report has slammed a Pontefract primary school for classroom violence, bullying, high levels of truancy and poor teaching.

Watchdog Ofsted has placed the town’s De Lacy Primary School in “special measures” after inspectors raised concerns about pupils being physically aggressive to staff, missing lessons and failing to hit targets in reading, writing and mathematics.

Also in the news:

- A devastated mum says her children were put in the care of social services after doctors misdiagnosed her 15-month-old daughter’s arm injury.

- An Ackworth family has struck gold after discovering a hoard of Civil War coins in their garden.

-The chief executive of the trust that runs Pontefract Hospital has apologised for the controversial overnight closure of its A&E – but said it would only reopen when it was “safe” to do so.
