The York Education Partnership - the Local Response to Changing Times
Decision Maker: Executive
Decision status: Decision Made
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Purpose of report: The Schools White Paper:
“The Importance of Teaching” was published on the 24
November. This paper describes the steps that have taken place
between the Local Authority and the school community to respond to
the direction of travel described in the document. Members are
asked to consider the recommendations.
This item was moved from the Executive meeting on 15 March to the Decision Session as consultation was still underway with schools. The move to the Decision Session in June was to allow the response to encompass schools’ views. This item will now be considered by the Cabinet on 6 September 2011 due to having to wait for the Education Bill to receive Royal Assent. This report has now been slipped to the October meeting as whilst preparation is advanced in developing the new partnership, the specific details required for consultation by members will not be available until the October meeting.
RESOLVED: That the formation of the York Education Partnership be supported.
REASON: Proposals for the York Education Partnership were strongly endorsed by the education community, and the Partnership will enable local schools, with support from the local authority, to continue to work together in providing the best possible educational experience for all children and young people across the City.
