DYT Week Ahead: Focus on Timpson

 

13th May 2019

 

DYT’s Top story:

Last week, we focused on the news about The Timpson Review of School Exclusions, this week we lend an eye to the government’s response which suggested a major review of the SEND Code of Practice and review of SEMH is on the cards. We also take a look at how the review has gone down with various parts of the education sector.

 

Focus on Timpson:

 

  • TES provide a look at the key recommendations made in Timpson and what it will mean in reality for schools.

 

  • Phoenix education ask about the place and contribution of young people in the Timpson inquiry and says that we must begin to listen to their experiences on being excluded.

 

  • Special Needs Jungle give their verdict that the report raises important issues but ultimately falls short of providing the needed solutions for protecting SEND learners from exclusions.

 

  • Schools Week have a range of opinions following the review – Cath Murray looks at the importance of partnership in her new role at the CSJ Think Tank,  Leora Cruddas makes the case for why schools must maintain the right to exclude and Stephen Tierney looks at ways the accountability system could work in practice. There also have the opinion of Kiran Gill, who advised the commission who says that the DfE’s response is ‘disingenuous’ and that more funding was needed for AP.

 

  • Finally, in case you missed it – DYT’s Director of Operations Karen Wespieser has blogged about DYT’s response.

 

DYT’s Week Ahead:

Tuesday: 

The Education Committee continues its inquiry into Opportunity Areas, with Minister for Children and Families, Nadhim Zahawi being questioned on progress and impact of the areas to date.

Over in the House of Lords, there is a question on the government’s approach to improving the educational experience and attainment of adopted children, including those adopted from abroad.

Wednesday: 

The Education Committee will hold an accountability session with the recently appointed Universities Minister, Chris Skidmore. One of Skidmore’s first announcements related to the experience and support of dyslexic students in higher education – something to look out for among the questions.

Finally…

Good luck to all those involved in the Year 6 SATs this year!
