Foundation welcomes Lord Adonis' speech
Lord Andrew Adonis, the schools minister, today launches two new school council related initiatives at Milfield School in East London. The Citizenship Foundation welcomed his positive attitude.The first initiative is a joint paper with the Secondary Heads Association (SHA) and the second is a Schools Council UK toolkit for primary schools. The event will reinvigorate the citizenship agenda and highlight the key role citizenship education plays in successful schooling.
"Lord Adonis' positive comments about the vital role that citizenship education can play in school improvement and transformation will be warmly received by the citizenship education community. The Citizenship Foundation welcomes these important moves to support school councils and, more broadly, pupil participation in the primary and secondary sectors. Such participative opportunities strengthen and bring to life the Citizenship curriculum.” Tony Breslin, Chief Executive Citizenship Foundation.
