And finally for today I attended the Governing Body Meeting at Woodlands Primary School...

I was there to talk to the governors about child protection, attendance and the extended schools pilot we are planning to run over the next couple of years. We know that a brilliant school delivers about 12% of a child's success, a brilliant family secures about 30% and a brilliant community secures about 30%. If we are serious about delivering significantly better outcomes for our children we need to work more consistently with families and communities. It was a great meeting and I look forward to developing the work with Woodlands Primary School to deliver better outcomes for children and better outcomes for families in this community.

Can we be told more about the extended schools pilot you are running over the next couple of years?
