Councillors are set to rubber-stamp plans to improve standards in Stoke-on-Trent’s schools.
A report has been drawn up and will be presented to Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s cabinet on September 27.
Councillor Alan Dutton, cabinet member for education, said: “Our vision is to make lives better, by radically improving outcomes for children and young people in the city.
“This strategy complements that vision. We must do everything we can to give our young people the skills, qualifications and aspirations they need to take advantage of the city’s regeneration.”
Among the recommendations are:
- A greater emphasis on inter-school collaboration and support.
- Constructive, critical challenges to schools, with extra support for those in need.
- Help for vulnerable children and young people.
- Developing effective leadership in schools.
