SCHOOLS NorthEast response on Ofsted's letter to Heads regarding exclusion rates in the North East

SCHOOLS NorthEast response on Ofsted's letter to Heads regarding exclusion rates in the North East (20th February, 2018)

Mike Parker, SCHOOLS NorthEast Director, said:

“We need to recognise that exclusions – fixed-term or permanent - are a last resort for the vast majority of school leaders. This is a complex issue and the data alone does not tell the full story.

SCHOOLS NorthEast’s response on the Northern Powerhouse Partnership Report

SCHOOLS NorthEast’s response on the Northern Powerhouse Partnership Report (1st February, 2018)

Mike Parker, SCHOOLS NorthEast Director, said:

“We welcome the prominence the document gives to issues that we have long discussed in the North East, however the success of the report will be in the action the Government takes to address the main recommendations that the report outlines.

“In particular, we back the report’s conclusion that the Government has to act urgently to bring its flagship Opportunity Areas support to the North East. SCHOOLS NorthEast has repeatedly challenged the decision not to include this region in a £72m initiative that is also attracting the lion’s share of other school improvement funding and projects to drive up attainment in disadvantaged areas.”
