Representatives across a wide range of sectors come together in September’s Parliamentary Review to voice their strengths, challenges and expert opinions collectively. With the long-term future in mind, the review centres on securing the foundations for our future productivity by improving school standards, transforming technical education and delivering infrastructure for growth. These plans for the future are just some of the views echoed throughout The Review from leaders from across the country.
Success for educators across the nation does not always come easily, and this year's edition of The Parliamentary Review is indispensable for anyone who seeks to make a name for themselves in education. It highlights significant successes, developments and concerns for school leaders up and down the country.
The co-chairman of The Parliamentary Review, Lord Pickles, has praised the upcoming Review as one of the most comprehensive yet. He commented that as Britain undergoes changes, it is “essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend” and that The Review once again provides a perfect platform for this.
Writing in The Review, Lord Blunkett says “that the education service continues to deliver for individuals, communities and of course for our nation.”
Ian Hockey (Headteacher of Cornelius Vermuyden) said "We are delighted to be involved in this year's Parliamentary Review and we hope our story is read widely."'

Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).
Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.
However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
