Education Strategy for Barnet
Barnet is well known for the quality of its schools, and overall Barnet’s children and young people have a lot to celebrate.
A very high proportion of Barnet’s children and young people have access to a good, or outstanding, school compared to elsewhere in the country, attainment of children at the end of primary and secondary school is among the best in the country and a high proportion of Barnet young people go on to university.
We need to ensure that all of Barnet’s children and young people benefit and make progress, and that our local offer is appropriate and broad enough to meet the full range of needs and interests of all our young people as they transition into adulthood.
Our partnership approach is set out in our Education Strategy for Barnet 2017 – 2020, which provides a framework for schools, education providers and others to work together to achieve the ambition set out in Barnet’s Children and Young People Plan.

School Improvement Strategy
The School Improvement Strategy sets out the priorities for ensuring that children and young people continue to benefit from an excellent, high quality education offer. It is set out in two parts:
- Part A sets out our vision and aims, current achievement in Barnet, the strengths, areas for development and priorities for improvement, and the plans for how we are going to address these.
- Part B outlines our approach to monitoring, challenging and supporting all of our schools and how we give intensive support and close monitoring to our Schools Causing Concern.
