Many people I know share this compelling vision of a great school where every young person is a reader, writer and counter by eight, a brilliant little learner by eleven and becomes an independent learner following their own personalised learning programme through secondary education and on into college, university, the world of work and adult life.
To drive this challenging and ambituous agenda we must develop learning leadership, assessment for learning, learning to learn strategies and the powerful use of new technologies alongside a relevant, rewarding and engaging curriculum offer underpinned by new models of intelligent accountability and supported by a strong commitment to workforce development, effective advice and guidance, mentoring and coaching. This must crucially be connected to and listening to the voices of young people and their parents and carers.

Surely this isn't much to ask... so let's get on with it!
