Beech House School recognised in the Parliamentary Review

For the second time in seven years the School has been honoured by being included in the Parliamentary Review as one of the top twelve schools in the North of England. The Principal Mr Sartain attended a reception at the House of Commons. The main speaker was Ed Balls, the former Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, and ‘Strictly’ star. One of the things that Mr Balls and Mr Sartain have in common is their dancing skills!                                                                                                        By placing policy discussion into the hands of large and small schools across the country, The Parliamentary Review moves away from the “Westminster Bubble” to get to the heart of the issues that matter most to educators. Jointly chaired by Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett, the Review's non-partisan approach facilitates policy development driven by those who are most affected by it. Success for educators across the nation does not always come easily, and this year's edition of The Parliamentary Review is indispensable for anyone who seeks to make a name for themselves in education. It highlights significant successes, developments and concerns for school leaders up and down the country. The co-chairman of The Parliamentary Review, Lord Pickles, has praised the upcoming Review as one of the most comprehensive yet. He commented that as Britain undergoes changes, it is “essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend” and that The Review once again provides a perfect platform for this. Writing in The Review, Lord Blunkett says, “that the education service continues to deliver for individuals, communities and of course for our nation.”                                                                                                                             The best practice article for Beech House School can be viewed here:
