Here’s something interesting from the Department for Education (why not go the whole hog and just return to the “Department of Education”?). Michael Gove has decided to stop separate funding of the Specialist School programme; the £450 million will, instead, be redirected through the “Dedicated Schools Grant” that gets dished out by the Local Authorities…. The question is of course whether the LA will actually pass on the same amount of money to the same schools. On the positive side, Mr Gove has decided that schools will no longer have to redesignate with immediate effect! Yippee! Does this mean we will be a Language College for ever at Gillotts? I wonder what will happen to the Belfry-like jollies for people like me?
