"The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination." John Schaar

We had another meeting this morning with colleagues from the DfES and Partnerships for Schools (PfS). This followed up the initial discussions with Lord Adonis, the DfES and the meeting yesterday with the Prime Minister, the Secretary of State and Lord Adonis. Things are moving rapidly and we need to engage with our partners and our schools as we rethink and reshape the strategic vision for secondary and post-16 learning here in Leeds. We need to think how trusts and academies can help us to drive the standards agenda and achieve the sort of outcomes we all want to see for our young people... and we need to do it quickly to meet the timetable we have set with the Council, with the LSC and with PfS.
