Damian Hinds, the government's Secretary of State for Education, received a positive response from delegates at NAHT conference this afternoon when he said he trusts them to get on with the job, and that school leaders know best about how to improve their schools.
In his speech, the Secretary of State addressed a wide range of issues, and laid out his plans for a new accountability system which would seek to replace the current confusing system of having both a ‘below-the-floor’ standard and ‘coasting’ standards for performance.
‘There will be a single, transparent data trigger at which schools will be offered support in this way, and we will consult on how this single measure should work’ he added.
