Q I thought the concept of a School-Led System was to reduce costs.

A I believe the challenge of a Schools-Led System is to deliver good quality appropriate education to all children; by listening to then analysing the knowledge and experience from the ‘coal face’ practitioners, which should include all stake holders in the schools system. When this is being done on a rolling programme then we should be able to deliver the best possible education to all children. If that can be done while improving cost efficiency (which often is the by-product when this process of management is done well) then that is to the good of all. This is a real and rewarding challenge for the school leadership team and for schools Governors and Trustees to monitor.
