Conference in London on 28 January 2012 – special website with full information at http://www.educationconference.org.uk/.
‘Most schools throughout the UK,’ says the conference website by way of introduction, ‘are committed to reducing inequalities relating to disability, ethnicity, faith, gender, sexual identity and social class. Their longstanding commitments have been supported and strengthened by the general and specific duties placed on all public authorities by the Equality Act 2010; the 2012 Ofsted framework; the targeted funding provided by the pupil premium grant; and the report of the Children’s Commissioner in England on school exclusions.’ This conference at the University of London Institute of Education will aim to:
– explore the implications of the new legislation and funding for schools
– show how schools can illustrate the impact of intervention intended to raise attainment
– promote practical and strategic school leadership which is likely to be recognised as outstanding.
