I started the day early with Andrew Edwards and Georgey Spanswick on BBC Radio Leeds Breakfast Show...

They wanted to know more about the consultation we are carrying out on the proposal to stop providing girls only education here in Leeds. It was an opportunity to explain the challenges we are facing with sustaining efficient and effective provision for girls and that the number of first preferences for our girls only provision at Parklands Girls High School had fallen significantly so that the school was increasingly becoming unsustainable. I stressed that we wanted to hear from parents and carers across the city about what they wanted for their girls and that this consultation was a unique opportunity to help us shape how we further develop school provision in the city.
