The work of the Kirkby Collaborative of Schools is described in this newly published piece of work.
This report brings up to date the Centre for Equity in Education’s work over ten years in monitoring efforts to create a more equitable education system. In partnership with local practitioners, policy makers and communities, it has sought to understand how inequities arise in some of England’s most disadvantaged places – in former mill and mining towns, poor inner-city suburbs, and social housing estates – and what can be done to address these, locally and nationally.
Section 3 outlines Promising developments.
Here we present some of the promising developments emerging in the places where we work. We are not claiming these to be ‘solutions’, or to comprehensively address the challenges set out in Section 2, but they do provide a clear signal to policy makers about how the system could be moved in more equitable directions.
