The Strategic Education Partnership Board held its inaugural meeting last week (March 8), at which it created five sub-groups to address its priority issues across areas for education improvement in the borough.

The Partnership, which was launched in January, has been established to enable the council, schools and colleges in Bexley to work together to produce solutions to the complex challenges that impact on the quality of children’s education.

The five groups covered include: education performance and achievement, school places and planning, special educational needs and disabilities, inclusion, workforce development, succession planning and governance.

The Strategic Board is made up of Bexley’s cabinet member for education, Cllr John Fuller, chief executive Gill Steward, deputy director of the regional schools commissioner’s office, Jonathan Duff and representatives from the local education community, the local authority and school governors.

Cllr Fuller said; “We have some fantastic schools in our borough and we already benefit from the close relationship we have with our school community.

“I feel confident that this partnership will be able to further improve that relationship, which in turn will support the great work carried out by our hardworking teachers and students.”
