I moved on to the Secondary Headteachers meeting at Weetwood Hall...

I wanted to talk to these colleagues about the wicked issues facing us over the next couple of years:
  • Budget;
  • Children's Services;
  • 21st Century Schools;
  • Elections.

And our need to focus on:

  • Secondary standards;
  • National Challenge schools;
  • Attendance; and
  • Behaviour.

We know that the National Challenge baseline will continue to rise and that we should establish our own curriculum and outcomes framework, share what works and ensure that every young person achieves their potential through experiencing a broad, rich, dynamic and exciting offer which develops ownership, creativity, enterprise and responsibility.
