A new review group has been set up to recommend ways of:

  • ensuring that personalised learning is a reality in every classroom
  • setting out a vision for how teaching and learning should develop over the next 15 years.
  • Topics Among the topics to be examined by the review are:

    • teaching and learning strategies
    • best use of setting and grouping
    • improving parental engagement
    • closing the achievement gap
    • utilising flexibilities in the National Curriculum
    • schools collaborating together.

    Deadline The group is expected to report before the end of the year on practical steps to help schools cater for every child’s talents and needs. Its findings will help determine how £625 million is spent over the coming two years on providing:

    • small group work or individual tuition for pupils who need to catch up in English or maths
    • targeted support for children who may underachieve
    • opportunities to stretch the brightest pupils.

    The review is being chaired by Christine Gilbert, chief executive of Tower Hamlets. Other members include Jim Rose, who recently wrote a review of the teaching of early reading; Derek Wise, head of Cramlington Community High School in Northumberland and Kathy August, principal of Manchester Academy.
