The Role of Regional Schools Commissioners
HC 401, First Report of Session 2015-16 - Report, Together with Formal Minutes Relating to the Report
- House of Commons - Education Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
There is a clear need for an intermediate structure between Whitehall and individual schools and Regional Schools Commissioners (RSCs) were introduced as a pragmatic response to this need; however, the report 'The Role of Regional Schools Commissioners (HC 401)' identifies that the role of the RSCs is continuing to evolve, and a more fundamental reassessment of accountability and oversight for all schools will be required in the future to provide coherence.
In the meantime, the relationships that RSCs build with other components of this system including local authorities, Ofsted, teaching schools, parents and local communities, are crucial to securing an impact on school improvement. An emphasis on working with and through these key partners will help ensure that RSCs have the capacity to cope with planned expansion of their role.
In conclusion, the role of RSCs remains unclear to many and this must be addressed for effective relationships to be formed.
