Universal provision- our statutory duties
Our offer to all schools
As a Local Authority we recognise that bringing certainty, consistency and collective experience where we can is particularly important not only now but also for the future as we emerge out of this crisis. We are committed to ensuring that the school improvement offer meets need and we recognise that these have and will continue to change as a result of the pandemic. We also recognise that the onset of COVID 19 has highlighted the necessity to work together and bring about change for the better which you tell us has been welcome. We want to ensure we take every opportunity to build this is a way that benefits our children and young people.
From April 2021
To improve transparency and bring further clarity about how we interpret our statutory duties and how we will provide support for all schools in the following year, we recently updated our universal provision offer that applies to all schools in the borough whatever their designation. This is in line with the Council’s vision to ensure that every child has the best start in life.
