Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Jun 2015)

Louise Haigh: While we are talking about data, the Local Schools Network has managed—incredibly, given the lateness with which the Government made public the regulations last night—to crunch the data and has found that 814 secondary schools would be defined as coasting under the Government’s regulations.

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Jun 2015)

Louise Haigh: Annie, you mentioned the inter-agency barriers that still exist.
