The Department for Children Schools and Families (DCSF) has just published Your child, your schools, our future: building a 21st century schools system: Timetable for action.  The DCSF  states that “In developing the system, the Government intends to extend and draw fully on the evidence base and seeks to understand ever more deeply the needs of different pupils, parents, teachers, schools and areas of the country. This implementation plan sets out the concrete steps they will take to make a reality of these goals.”

In his foreword, Ed Balls, writes “ In the next period, we need to move services for children, young people and families from good to outstanding in what they achieve. This will mean:

  • guarantees for parents and children of what they can expect from all our services;
  • great leadership that innovates to drive ever greater improvement and shares knowledge right across the system;
  • a highly skilled and professional workforce across all our services for children and young people, which can ensure no child is left behind; and
  • partnerships within and between schools and children’s services – because no one can deliver for children alone and services need to work together to intervene early.”

The full report can be downloaded here.

My Vision of School Should learning – and schools – be about learning skills for the employment world or knowledge for knowledge’s sake?
