At this year’s Labour Party Conference, the Education Policy Institute (EPI) has partnered with the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) to co-host an open fringe panel discussion: ‘How to boost school collaboration in a partly academised system to benefit children and young people?’
A partially academised school system and a variety of different school types in the UK can present challenges for collaboration between schools and colleges. Closer collaboration between schools and the sharing of best practice is key to ensuring an effective school system which works for all children and young people and improves outcomes for all pupils.
This panel will bring together policymakers, education unions and school leaders to discuss how we can enhance collaboration and partnership working between schools in a varied system.
We are delighted to confirm that Peter Kyle, Shadow Schools Minister, Tulip Siddiq, Shadow Minister (Education), Rachel de Souza, Children’s Commissioner, Sophie Harrison-Byrne, New Schools Network, Geoff Barton, ASCL and Natalie Perera, EPI, will be joining the panel.
