Mystery of the missing zone;Letter;News and opinion

26th November 1999 at 00:00
I WAS disappointed that The Hamilton Oxford Schools Partnership education action zone is an unfortunate omission from your map (TES, November 12).

Based in the city of Oxford, it is a second round zone which received an early go-ahead on September 6. Its absence is doubly regrettable since you highlight the relatively few zones to be led by the private sector. Here we have a partnership between a private trust and 16 schools, together with Oxfordshire County Council.

We have already started innovative projects such as integrated support services, helping schools to to improve attendance and to support families, and supplying computers at nominal cost to teachers. Schools in the zone are committed to working together, and with our partners we will ensure that teaching and learning is effective in raising standards.
