An MP has met with the Minister of State for Schools after a head teacher took her own life in the lead-up to the publication of an Ofsted report.

Ruth Perry was the head at Caversham Primary School in Caversham, Reading, where she had worked for 13 years.

The 53-year-old's family said she took her own life in January and had described the inspection as the worst day of her life.

Reading East MP Matt Rodda said he was aware of concerns about the inspection.

He told the BBC: "I've had a meeting with the schools minister [Nick Gibb] and I've also raised this with the regional director of Ofsted.

"I think it's fair to say there are local concerns about the way the inspection was carried out, also about the way the Ofsted framework and other regulations affecting Ofsted effectively work, and the wider pressure on head teachers."
