This consultation is now closed. The final date for feedback was 14 October 2016.

Torbay now has a diverse economy of educational providers across primary, secondary and post 16 phases, including maintained schools, academies, special, studio and grammar schools.  Alongside the programme of structural reform that created academies, studio and free schools that are accountable to central rather than local government, there has been a sustained programme of qualification and curriculum reform.

In March 2016, the Department for Education set out its vision for further educational reforms which will require us to refresh our own approach towards working with local schools to further improve outcomes for children and young people.

The revised strategy sets out a vision for the delivery of our educational support services within a significantly changed operating landscape. 

We would now like to hear your views on the draft strategy. The action plan will be populated in partnership with schools and key stakeholders to ensure a consistent and shared approach towards improvement activity.
