Unleashing Greatness: Getting The Best From An Academised System
This new report by the Academies Commission recommends that the Government should do more to encourage them to use their new found freedoms to drive up standards in the classroom. Whilst noting many stunning successes, the Commission’s report concludes that driving excellence in teaching and learning particularly requires schools to focus rigorously on what’s happening in classrooms, with greater expectations around collaboration and school to school support. The responsibility to deliver fair access should be reinforced, with greater accountability to key stakeholders, especially parents, backed by strong, expert and independent governance.
