New initiatives

7th February 1997 at 00:00
Subject to the availability of resources, I am also preparing a numberof new initiatives.

* In 1997 we will have completed the four year cycle of inspections of all maintained secondary schools in England. I am therefore proposing to draw these findings together in a review of secondary education.

* My annual report this year has raised concerns about special schools for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties. I wish to identify key features of successful practice in this difficult and demanding area.

* This year's report has raised questions about the effectiveness of in-service education and training (INSET). I will look at the arrangements for, and the cost effectiveness of INSET.

* I also propose to look at what should be done with the small proportion of pupils who are excluded from schools.
