Ofsted asks headteachers to 'show the leadership needed to change the learning landscape'
As part of a major review of access and achievement, Sir Michael Wilshaw has outlined a programme of work and the establishment of a review panel of school leaders and academic experts.
Access and Achievement in Urban Education: 20 years on will seek to answer some key questions:
- Why are some children and young people more affected by socio-economic and educational disadvantage than others?
- What more can be done by parents and education providers to ensure the best possible start for those that need it most?
- Some schools are doing a great job for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. So what can we learn from them and how can we ensure that many more schools do as well as the best?
- Schools and colleges have greater autonomy now over their policies and use of resources. So how do we secure effective coordination and improvement of local education services in areas of the greatest educational need?
- What more needs to happen to ensure that young people from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve success in employment and as citizens?
