Another consultation paper published by the DCSF (Ref. DCSF-01044-2008). Some points arising are:
Schools to get a ‘report card’.
Strong emphasis of children with special and additional needs.
Strong commitment to the community including collaborative working:
working in isolation, no one school will be able deliver the broad range of inputs and outcomes we want to see.
Schools will take responsibility for improving outcomes for children and young people in the wider community as well as those on their own roll.
