Working together to improve education – have your say!

How we can work together to improve education is the topic of Bradford District’s next public forum for education. The forum takes place on Tuesday, 28 June 2016 from 4.30pm – 6.30pm in the Hockney Conference Room at Margaret McMillan Tower, Princes Way, Bradford BD1 1NN.

The forum will discuss the Bradford Education Covenant, which looks at how everyone in our community can help drive up education standards across the District.

The covenant sets out what the Council can do and what the community – including schools, pupils, parents, governors and businesses - can do to support young people’s education.

It asks that everyone in the District gets involved in a united drive to improve school standards and make education everybody’s business.

Speakers at the forum will include young people, representatives from business, parents and the voluntary sector.

There will be table discussions on how the covenant can be developed further to have an impact on the raising of standards for all young people across the District.

Michael Jameson, Strategic Director of Children’s Services, said: “We know it takes a community to raise a child, and many people have an important role to play in a child’s education.

“We want to hear from parents, teachers, young people, early years providers, business and the voluntary sector on how we can work together to give our children and young people the best possible start in life.” 

Brent Fitzpatrick MBE, experienced Bradford Schools Governor and National Leader of Governance, who will be the independent chair at the forum, said: “We want to develop the covenant in partnership with all sectors of the community and need to hear your views. 

“Anyone with an interest is welcome so please bring friends and colleagues.  We would particularly like parents and young people to attend.”
