Department for Education

Runcorn, Cheshire - United Kingdom

The Department for Education is responsible for education and children's services. Find out about the academies programme which provides schools with greater freedoms to innovate and raise standards. The Department for Education is committed to creating a world-class state education system. We will work to improve the opportunities and experiences available to children and the education workforce by focusing on the following priorities:

* Giving greater autonomy to schools
In many of the most successful education systems in the world, individual schools are given a high level of autonomy. It is headteachers and teachers, not bureaucrats and politicians, who inspire pupils and drive school improvement. In addition to the existing Academies programme, which will continue to drive faster improvements in deprived and disadvantaged areas, we will now also invite all schools to apply for the kind of autonomy that has served schools in America, Canada, Sweden and Finland so well.

* Improving parental choice
For too long, too many parents have been denied the choice of a good local school, with an antiquated admissions system that has relegated the poorest children to a second-rate education. As well as improving standards in all schools, we will capitalise on the passion of parents, teachers and charities who want to make a difference by making it easier for them to set up and run their own schools. Details information may be found at the web site.
