The schools White Paper, The Importance of Teaching published today

The Schools whitepaper is published today. Below is text direct from the Department of Education website. More on this later.

The schools White Paper, The Importance of Teaching, sets out a radical reform programme for the schools system, with schools freed from the constraints of central Government direction and teachers placed firmly at the heart of school improvement.

The White Paper also sets out:

• powers for teachers to improve discipline, and trialling a new approach to exclusions

• a vision for a transformed school curriculum supported by rigorous assessment and qualifications

• more academies and free schools and a strong strategic role for local authorities

• changes to school performance tables, Ofsted inspections and governance

• a fairer funding system including a pupil premium to channel more money to the most deprived children

• school-led school improvement replacing top-down initiatives.

More commentary on this white paper later once I have read it!
