How business sugared the literacy pill
As a committee member of Newham Education Business Partnership, I frequently see at first hand the important contribution which local business leaders make to both primary and secondary education. As a result of this involvement, to give just one example, over a five-year period all Newham primary schools will directly benefit from a substantial financial contribution by Tate Lyle which is aimed at improving standards of literacy and numeracy.
For this borough at least, the White Paper provides an exciting opportunity for education and business and creates a new momentum to help us extend the highly successful partnership that already exists.
