Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell has discussed key parts of the Education White Paper with the Regional Schools Commissioner during a meeting in Westminster.
Caroline told Dominic Herrington that she was pleased the Government has changed its policy on forced academisation.
She told the commissioner she supported other areas of the white paper including positive changes to school inspection regimes to see more turnaround time for new head teachers and less intrusion for good and outstanding schools because it would lessen stress and workload.
Other initiatives she welcomed were: setting up an online parent portal, more time given to schools to embed the curriculum and the continuation of the pupil premium.
“Dominic has a key role as regional commissioner, and I look forward to working closely with him in the coming months and years to ensure that children in Eastbourne get the best start they can to their education,” said Caroline.
“This Education White Paper has much in it that will very help teachers, pupils and parents.”
