Outside body

Schools Effectiveness and Achievement Monitoring Group



An internal City of York Council body which provides a mechanism for members to monitor school performance in accordance with section 13A of the 1996 Education Act which requires local authorities to ensure high standards and fulfilment of potential through education and training in their area.


Meetings and reporting:

Meetings will be scheduled on at least a termly basis (three per year) and will have an identified focus (e.g. use of pupil premium or work with children in care or with SEND).

In addition, half-termly reports will be produced and circulated to members of the Group, identifying schools who have undergone an inspection since the previous report and providing an overview of the gradings of all schools in the city. The report will include information relating to ParentView and any school improvement activity that is taking place. Headteachers of inspected schools will be contacted and invited to complete a feedback form on their inspection experience, and meet with the Group if they wish to.

Members of the Group will be invited to school / education related meetings and events to ensure they have network and discussion opportunities with education leaders (headteachers / CEOs), and receive relevant updates and information.


The Executive Member for Children, Young People and Education is an automatic member and Chairs the group.
