Please find attached Lambeth’s Education and Learning Strategy 2018-22
We want Lambeth to continue to be at the forefront of change and improvement in education, retaining good relationships between education providers and the Council and building on our collective strengths and achievements. To do this, the strategy has been developed in partnership with schools, other educational establishments and the Council.
It looks ahead to the next few years and outlines our shared ambition for our learners of all ages. It summarises the overarching strategy for education and learning in Lambeth between 2018-2022 with the aim to improve performance for all Lambeth pupils and support adults to develop the skills to succeed in the work place and fulfil their ambitions.
If you require further copies please download copies from the website.
We hope you find the strategy a useful and informative resource.

Lambeth Chief Inspector's Report 2016-17
The annual Chief Inspector's report summarises the progress made by Lambeth schools, pupils and the school community in raising achievement throughout the academic year. It also serves as an evaluation of the Local Authority’s work, in partnership with schools, through its Education and Learning Strategy, to achieve priorities against annual targets and the council’s vision for excellent schools provision.
Retention of School records
A number of schools have contacted us in relation to the retention of school records.
There is advice on retention of GB records/school records in the Records Management Toolkit for Schools produced by the Information and Records Management Society:
This includes information about governing board papers, minutes etc from page 37, but unhelpfully it isn’t listed in the table of contents. Minutes should be kept permanently – in school for 7 years and then archived.
There is also advice on records management on the National Archives website: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/manage-information/

Tackling Educational Inequality - What Really Works?
Tackling Educational Inequality – What Really Works?
Closing the gap between the achievement of disadvantaged pupils who are entitled to free school meals and their peers is one of the biggest challenges faced by policy makers, teachers and school leaders in England. There is now a well-established body of research evidence that shows the gap is still wide and has not narrowed much over the period. A particular concern is that inequality in education outcomes has grown for some groups such as Black Caribbean, White British Working Class and disadvantaged pupils.
The speaker is Dr Feyisa Demie, Lambeth's Head of Research and Adviser for School Self-Evaluation, talking about research he has recently completed investigating school initiatives nationally. This session looks at what really works in addressing educational inequality in schools.
