Your School, Your Community

Posted on June 15, 2016 by Su Turner.

In our first publication Back to School, we explored the role that Overview and Scrutiny could play in supporting schools and holding the education sector to account. The case for a continued but changing role for councils and their scrutiny function was compelling in relation to all schools, whatever their governance. One area that emerged from this work was the need to explore further the role of individual councillors in school improvement.

This second publication explores how a councillor might use their community leadership role to develop new relationships with the schools in their ward.
