Westminster Council believes education is vital to improve the social mobility and economic productivity of Westminster's future adult population. Prospects for children and young people in Westminster have improved due to recent, targeted school improvements and we are keen to build on this success. With this in mind, the Leader of the Council and the Cabinet Member for Children's Services established the Westminster Education Commission. This commission is made up of an independent panel of experts under the chairmanship of Professor David Eastwood. The panel has been called together to investigate opportunities for children in Westminster schools, drawing together the findings into a report to guide Westminster's future education policy.
The panel includes: Professor David Eastwood (Chair), Professor Philip Adey, Philip Cross, Anastasia De Waal, Dr Lee Eliot Major, The Very Reverend Dr John Hall, Tristram Jones-Parry and Dr Rona Tutt. To see their biographies, click here.
Five all-day sessions are planned between March and July, covering each of the following issues:
The committee will be holding afternoon sessions where they will be listening to the views of a variety of stakeholders including parents, headteachers, training providers and community groups. If you have an opinion as to how we can improve educational attainment for our young people, we would love to hear from you.
Please let us know your views by e-mailing us at: email@example.com indicating which of the five questions you are responding to.
We look forward to hearing from you.
