BCP Council is committed to ensuring that our children and young people have access to the best possible education and therefore to supporting our schools as they strive to achieve that aim. We fully accept the challenge of ensuring that all schools in Poole are good or better because all children deserve the chance to succeed especially the most vulnerable.
The local authority is no longer here to instruct schools in how to improve but we do have an important role in monitoring the performance of schools and intervening when necessary to prevent failure.
The School Standards and Support policy is intended to clarify that role and set out in detail the processes that will be employed to put it into practice.
