From education to employment

Joint understanding between DfE and @ISC_schools

DfE Today (11 May) published their joint understanding which sets out how the independent sector will work in partnership with state schools to help raise attainment and, in particular, help pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.

This document sets out a joint understanding between the Department for Education (DfE) and the Independent Schools Council (ISC) in relation to independent and state school partnership working (ISSP cross-sector working) in England.

Schools which are in membership of ISC member associations operate as independent bodies. This understanding demonstrates a commitment on the part of ISC associations, on behalf of member schools, to support the raising of educational standards in state schools where independent schools have the capability and capacity to provide expertise and resource and a commitment on the part of government to creating circumstances under which this can operate most effectively.
