Primary Education: Isle of Wight

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 20 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what specific issues his Department has informed the Isle of Wight Council are required to be addressed by 1 February 2008 in the local primary school strategy for change. (184186)

[holding answer 4 February 2008]: The 6 December guidance sets out the broad requirements. We will be contacting local authorities shortly with regard to specific issues that we would expect to be addressed through the primary strategy for change to be submitted by 16 June. Tackling poor performance and managing surplus places sensitively will be key considerations.
