Ed Balls announces next stage of school improvement with radical solutions across the country
29 March 2010

- First primaries to become part of chains and support the improvement of other schools -

- Funding for additional National Challenge Trusts announced -

- Decisions made on new schools proposals -

Schools Secretary Ed Balls today announced the next stage of school improvement to drive up performance in primary schools, secondary schools and Academies across the country.

He today confirmed the 16 primaries that will support the improvement of other schools as part of the Accredited Schools Providers (ASPs) and Accredited Schools Groups (ASGs) programme - where the best schools will help spread expertise and leadership across the country and help push school standards to the next level.

Accredited Schools Providers (ASPs) will support and lead up to two underperforming schools in need of rapid sustainable school improvement. Providers with the best track records can apply to become an Accredited Schools Group (ASGs) and support and lead more than three schools or Academies.

Ed Balls said getting the best to lead and support their neighbours is a proven way of raising standards in all schools and encouraging high achievers to become ASPs should be a key strategy in the World Class Primary programme. This is designed to drive up primary standards across the board. Twenty three secondary schools were also approved as ASPs and ASGs today including four non-selective schools in selective areas. In addition, Woodberry Down Primary School was approved as the first primary ASG, five FE colleges were approved as ASPs, and independent school Wellington College and the University of Lincoln were both approved as ASPs.

The next steps on secondary school standards were also set out, building on the success of a number of National Challenge schools dropping from 631 in 2007 to 247 in 2009. The Department for Children, Schools and Families also today announced around £15 million in investment to enable the creation of 30 more National Challenge Trusts, along with new Academies in Kent and Suffolk.

Ed Balls has today also set out his views on three proposals for new schools and has given the green light to a school in Lambeth, asked Wandsworth to review its existing plans, but accepted advice not to proceed with proposals for a new and extra school in Kirklees.

Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, Ed Balls, said:

"Schools standards have been transformed in the last decade. With record investment in teachers and schools, the improvement in standards means that more than 600,000 students have left school with five good GCSEs and last year 100,000 more pupils left primary school with solid foundations in English and maths than in 1997.

"Thanks to our radical school improvement programme and the hard work of heads, teachers and other school staff, the entire system has shifted up a level and we are determined to keep it moving.

"But I want to go further to make sure that no child is left behind, and that every pupil in every primary, secondary and Academy is given the best possible start in life. That's why I am today announcing further action to drive improvements in schools where results continue to be persistently low and standards are below the floor target, to the detriment of all pupils and parents. That is the way to ensure every parent has a choice of good local schools.

"We know that getting the best leaders to support their colleagues really works, so I am announcing the first set of 47 schools and leading educational institutions that will lead chains of other schools - including 16 primary schools. I believe these schools will spread expertise, knowledge and leadership across the country and help drive improvement across the board.

"It's vital that local authorities encourage all their high achieving schools, both primary and secondary, to come forward to support other schools in their area."

First primaries, more secondaries, FE colleges and institutions to be approved as ASGs and ASPs

Fifteen primary schools have now been approved to work with neighbouring schools and become among the first Accredited Schools Providers, in a push to drive up standards. We have also today approved Woodberry Down Primary School as an ASG. Another 31 respected institutions, including secondary schools, FE colleges, Wellington College and the University of Lincoln, have been accredited to become ASPs and ASGs.

The Department has received reports from twelve local authorities with a high proportion of schools which have been below the floor at key stage 2, as part of the World Class Primary programme. And we have written to local authorities, urging them to get their best primary schools to apply to be an ASP and lead and support other schools in their area.

Secondary improvement update

The Government is today outlining around £15 million in funding for 30 more schools to become National Challenge Trusts, as demand outstrips original plans.

Since the National Challenge programme began in 2008, the number of schools below the floor has dropped from 631 in 2007 to 247 in 2009.

Schools Minister Vernon Coaker went on to confirm that a further fifteen schools have today either been granted National Challenge Trust funding, or have been agreed as National Challenge Trusts.

Significant progress has now also been made in Kent and Suffolk, after Ministers required both local authorities to submit action plans on how they would drive up GCSE standards, following independent reviews last year. Ministers have now accepted the action plans for both authorities.

Schools Minister Vernon Coaker said:

"I want to thank Graham Badman, George Gyte and Rob Briscoe for their reviews of National Challenge schools in Kent and Suffolk and the local authorities for working so constructively with them and producing their implementation plans, which we have approved today.

"The authorities' plans will improve school leadership, promote collaboration between schools and help ensure that all young people in Suffolk and Kent have the opportunity to go to a good school where they can succeed. The plans will bring extra funding and include proposals for new Academies and National Challenge Trusts in each authority, as well as additional targeted support."

Last year Ed Balls set out an expectation that all schools, including Academies which have been open for three years, should meet the benchmark of 30 per cent of children achieving five good GCSEs including English and maths by 2011. We are actively challenging and supporting those Academies and their sponsors who have the furthest distance to travel.

The Government also confirmed today, following consultation with stakeholders, that it would be formalising the existing arrangements for the selection of Academy sponsors for new projects, building on the system of collaboration that already exists between local authorities and the Government, it will bring enhanced transparency and consistency.

New school proposals

The Secretary of State today announced that he had agreed the setting up of a new Academy in Lambeth where there is a clear need for the additional places.

He has also written to Wandsworth Council following a meeting with local parents to say he is happy to work with the local authority to examine further the case for a secondary school in the east of the borough.

Following expert advice, he turned down an application from parents in Kirklees to publish proposals, under section 10 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006, to establish a new 11-16 foundation secondary school as, amongst other factors, he supports the local authority's view and expert advice that the a new school at Birkenshaw would result in an unacceptably high level of surplus places.

In doing so, he published the advice he received from Professor David Woods on the Birkenshaw, Birstall and Gomersal (BBG) Parent Alliance for consent to publish a new school proposal for Kirklees.

- targeted school support leadership.

Kent

- A new Academy
- the introduction of Teach First
- 25 National Challenge Schools to get involved with the Extra Mile project.

17. A National Challenge Trust aims to transform the school's performance by harnessing the expertise and energy of a strong education partner. The education partner is part of the Trust which will in turn appoint a majority of the schools' governing body.

18. A National Challenge Federation involves two or more schools coming together under one governing body and sharing the benefits of partnership, including shared teachers, resources and economies of scale.

- There will be additional NCT funding for Jarrow School, South Tyneside of £576,000 Eltham Green Specialist Sports College, Greenwich of £650,000 Both schools will become National Challenge Trusts on 1st April 2010. There will also be additional funding of Manor Foundation Business Enterprise and Sports College and Menzies High School Science College in Sandwell of £750,000. These schools are due to merge and reopen as a National Challenge Trust on 1 September 2010.

- NCT funding for Loreto College, Manchester of £665,900 and St Augustine's, Oldham of £685,520 both of which opened as a National Challenge Trust on 1 September 2009. There is also funding for Cardinal Hinsley, Brent which opened as a National Challenge Trust on 28 February 2010 and will receive £650,000, Collegiate High School, Blackpool which opened as an NCT on 1 March and will receive £615,000 and Parklane High in Calderdale which opened as an NCT on 15 March and will receive £720,500.

19. Local authorities will today also receive confirmation of funding allocation for National Challenge schools in 2010-11. This is a total £16m for LA maintained schools (excluding NCTs), £11.5m for NCTS and a further £5m for Academies opening in 2010/11 and £7m for Academies already open. The lower levels of funding for National Challenge schools that are not becoming NCTs and Academies reflects that there are now fewer such schools in the programme and the improvements that those that remain have made. This means that we are able to target resources to those most in need, including through 30 additional NCTs - meaning that we will fund up to 100 NCTs, instead of the 70 originally planned.
