30 Jun New Education Board to help shape #Southend schools announced
Southend-on-Sea is set to create an Education Board for the Borough, to replace the current Schools Forum (Cabinet, 28th June).
This would enable the local authority to continue to influence education policy and strategy and play a role in school improvement in the future, alongside schools as partners. The education board would also improve engagement between the council, its schools and academies.
The proposed Board would include statutory membership to include representation from primary, secondary, special schools and Governors, along with members from early years and 16-19 providers and professional associations.
