Priorities

Our aim is to raise education standards locally, providing every child and young person in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire with the chance to reach their full potential. The programme is structured around 4 key priorities:

Priority 1: Accelerate the progress of disadvantaged children and young people in the acquisition and development of communication, language and reading.

Priority 2: Strengthen the effectiveness of support for children and young people with mental health concerns and those with Special Educational Needs.

Priority 3: Raise aspiration and increase access for young people to a wide range of career choices and post-16 routes.

Priority 4: Recruit, develop and retain the best leaders and teachers in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire.

These priorities allow us to establish short and long term objectives, building on existing strengths and good practice, with a strong focus on ensuring improvements are sustainable. Together with local stakeholders, we are using these priorities to design initiatives and projects that will make a real difference to the lives of our children and young people.
