Local democracy during coronavirus

During coronavirus, we've made some changes to how we're running council meetings. See our coronavirus updates for more information on meetings and decisions.

Issue details

York Education Partnership

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.
