    anti-poverty charter and a local action plan.

You told us that we should be relentless in
driving up standards in our schools and

our children and young people and ensure
consistent learning progression and achievement
across the age ranges.

    packages for young people and management
    information systems to track individual progress.
  • Link school funding to performance based on
    individual progression.
  • Invest in additional individual tuition.

You told us to ensure that children were not
just prepared to pass tests but received
learning and developed skills which prepared
them for work and life.
  • We will
  • Develop frameworks, processes and systems that
    assess pupil progress, support testing when ready
    and implement the Making Good Progress
    programme in all schools across all ages.

You told us we should do more to support
children and young people at times of transition
in their learning progression, and improve the
accessibility of information and advice
available to young people at 14, 16 and 18.
  • We will...
  • develop supported transition programmes at key
    transition points. The Connexions specification
    will also be reviewed.

You told us... that the Council should deliver
learning in partnership with schools and others
such as higher and further education and
private sector partners.
  • We will...
  • build on the achievements of the 14-19
    Partnership Board and propose to commission
    learning through an 11-19 partnership board and a
    new partnership board for 0-11 years.

You told us that we needed to improve our
links with employers in business and commerce
in order to support learning.

  • build upon the work done to achieve the Diplomas
    and will create opportunities for develop the
    opportunity for Higher Education and Business to
    be involved.

You told us that we should involve parents and
carers more in key decisions about learning.
  • We will
  • think family first in the design and delivery
    of all our services.

You told us that we should revisit Newhams
vision for inclusion and ensure that it is
fit for todays purpose.
  • We will
  • launch a new and improved vision for inclusion
    in October 2008 and we have commenced a review of
    our existing services.

literacy and numeracy from an early age, to
ensure that all children and young people have
the relevant skills they will need to succeed in

    schools in Newham will roll-out of
  • Every Child a Reader
  • Every Child Counts

You told us that you valued Extended Services
through schools but that it needed a more
co-ordinated model of delivery.
  • We will
  • explore and develop wrap-around packages of
    services for every school with a view to
    maximising the number of children in teaching and
    learning every day in school or other settings.

You told us we needed to plan now for the
raising of the participation age to 18 from
2015 and improve the offer for our young
people post 14.
