I dashed to London on Tuesday afternoon for a meeting with Lord Adonis and colleagues at the DfCSF in Sanctuary Buildings...

Cllr Richard Harker and I have been trying to arrange a meeting with Lord Adonis to discuss our developing secondary school improvement strategy for the central area of Leeds and whether Academies can add to the mix and enhance what we are doing. It was a really helpful meeting which agreed that we should work with all our partners and stakeholders to develop a 'Central Leeds School Improvement and Learning Model'. The DfCSF will work with us and support us as we take forward Building Schools for the Future, the Learning and Skills Council's Review of FE Provision and together we will look where Academies would help us drive the school improvement agenda and achieve faster and more sustainable progress.
