Secondary Education: Nottingham

Volume 478: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will make it his policy to set an improvement target for Nottingham North secondary schools within a local area agreement indicator. (212190)

Local area agreements are due to be in place across the country by the end of June 2008. Government have not negotiated any secondary school targets in Nottingham's LAA, but may seek to do so at the first LAA annual refresh and review if the authority's plans for addressing the National Challenge floor target are not sufficiently robust, or other performance issues arise. Nottingham can, of course, include locally determined targets in their LAA to address secondary school performance at any time, without the need to consult or inform Government.
