The Education Strategy, which has been established by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, serves as a guiding compass for what the Bailiwick's education system needs to deliver.
Even in a small community like ours, the States-maintained education system is broad and diverse, covering early years, primary, secondary, post-16, special needs and adult learning across numerous sites. Think of the Education Strategy as the glue that binds all this together with one common purpose. And that is to ensure the best possible outcomes for all learners so that the education they receive makes a tangible difference to their lives and the community as a whole.
In our ever changing world, educational needs are constantly evolving, and the Education Strategy recognises that with four ongoing priorities:
- Achieving Equity, Safety and Inclusivity
- Meeting the Needs of our Community
- Delivering High Quality Learning and Excellent Outcomes
- Providing Outstanding Leadership and Governance
You can learn more about what each of these means via the individual pages on this site.
These priorities are being constantly developed in partnership with schools, settings and service leaders to make sure that there is a collective sense of ownership throughout States' education community.
Moving forward, everything that we do in education can be linked back to these four themes. It helps ensure accountability and that resources are directed in the best way possible.
The priorities are necessarily high-level, as you would expect any vision to be. Collectively they set out an overall framework to enable all aspects of education to flourish. What's key is that learners are always at the centre.
An Education Strategy Network, made up of representatives from across our different education settings, is tasked with bringing the Education Strategy to life.
