2016 was a year with many more challenges. Funding continues to be the central concern for my school and many others as I tweeted back in mid December.
In addition the structural changes that took place in the authority have caused further difficulties for families looking for honest and clear explanations of secondary school opportunities. We have a number of schools suggesting they each have the best results, whatever Progress 8 or other measures might have said.
We continue to look with our partners to ensure there is some stability in our part of the authority. All deemed good by OFSTED, it has given us the opportunity to look at what we can do to ensure that families get the best.
2027 will be a significant year in seeing how our hopes can be achieved.
