Schools Strategy

Refreshed Schools Strategy in response to Schools Bill.

We will work with partners to raise standards in schools and support young people to successfully transition out of secondary school ‘life ready’, equipped for work and lifelong learning.

For our vulnerable and SEND young people we will have a focus upon preparation for adult life from the earliest points

We will ensure that inclusion is at the heart of everything we do and we will work together to ensure all schools, as part of an integrated community-based response, provide inclusive and ‘poverty proofed’ services, which support all children and young people to attend and achieve their potential – including those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those disproportionally effected by the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic
