The Headteachers’ Roundtable Education Manifesto will be a set of ideas that we believe represent a coherent agenda for change as we seek to establish a genuinely world-class education system in this country; a system that enables children of all ages and backgrounds to thrive and to succeed. Our hope is that our manifesto will play some small part in influencing the policy agenda as we move closer to the 2015 General Election.
We have our own ideas but we are determined that the content of our manifesto should reflect the perspectives of a wide cross-section of people working in education. We are now inviting people to contribute specific proposals using the form below.
The format of each manifesto proposal is a succinct statement (maximum 200 words) outlining the key features of a policy that could be implemented by the next Government. We have identified a number of policy headings under which each proposal should be placed. Some headings will help us to shape the over-arching vision and principles underpinning the manifesto; others relate to specific policy areas. (Please focus on Government policy rather than best-practice recommendations for schools.).
You can submit up to three proposals at once using this form. If you have more ideas, please refresh the page after you have submitted your first three and add more.
Please take some time to add each proposal separately under the relevant heading. Please don’t put multiple proposals in one single paragraph as this will make it more difficult to share them afterwards.
The deadline for submissions is April 15th 2014
The final manifesto will be based on the ideas submitted. At an interim stage, a selection of contender proposals will be published and the final manifesto, published in May, will be tightly edited so that it genuinely represents a coherent agenda that has a reasonable chance of being implemented.
Thanks in advance for your contributions.
