And a new national deal on supply agency fees will be launched later this year. We know that schools have reported supply agencies demanding as much as 30% of a teacher’s annual salary as a finder’s fee where the school wishes to hire them permanently. Our new deal will drive down agency margins and restrict the use of finder’s fees.

Speech : Nicky Morgan speech at the NAHT annual conference 2016

We all agree it’s critical that we get primary assessment right, with tests fit for purpose, because mastering the basics in primary school is vital to the future success of young people. But in terms of evaluating school performance, the primary school floor standard has 2 parts: attainment and, crucially, progress. We are increasing the emphasis on the progress pupils make, because it’s a fairer way of evaluating school performance, particularly for those schools making great progress for pupils from a low starting point.

If I have not named your college or been able to visit yet, I do frequently hear about the good work you do, how you do it and the difficulties you face.

The fund will support smaller school trusts that wish to merge into existing or new academy groups, and providing high-potential academy trusts with funding to meet the challenges they face as they grow. Local authorities have an important role to play and we are committed to working with them to consider how this will evolve as we move towards the vast majority of schools becoming academies.

comfortably and get around. I think that’s a tragedy. We need to be doing more to improve accessibility on campus for every student. And it is important to remember that not all disabilities are visible. There are plenty students in our universities and colleges struggling with hidden disabilities like poor mental health and anxiety. Earlier this month, I met students at King’s College London who are battling these very issues. They told me just some of the things that would have made their experiences at university a lot easier – things like shorter waiting times for support; crucially, continuity of care between universities and GP practices both at home and during term-time; and dedicated training for university staff and students, so the whole university community knows how to spot someone suffering with poor mental health and point them in the right direction for support.

Headteacher inspectors: boundaries, identity and the potential for system leadership

Headteacher inspectors: boundaries, identity and the potential for system leadership

Increased self-regulation has led to a situation where headteachers manage themselves better and this becomes internalised over time (Foucault, 1980). Continuing surveillance through the process of monitoring and evaluation, such as inspection, means that teachers come to anticipate the response and come to discipline themselves (Harland, 1996). The result is that only a few years after Ofsted came into being inspectors were referred to by Troman (1997) as the, ‘absent presence’ in schools. The argument is that so complete is the relationship between Ofsted and schools that many headteachers are effectively, ‘resident inspectors’. Indeed, Perryman (2009) argued that even if a school is not being inspected the, ‘dark central tower’ of Ofsted is always invisibly watching.

Speech: Damian Hinds: Education Secretary sets vision for boosting social mobility: 31 July 2018

That is why this government has prioritised extending high quality pre-school education and childcare. For the first time, we introduced 15 hours of free early education a week for the most disadvantaged two- year-olds, including looked after children, children with special needs and children of low income families. That is on top of the 15 hours free childcare offer for all three-and-four-year-olds, which we doubled to 30 hours for working parents.

Review Article MMP-9 expression levels and the pathological differentiation of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC): a meta-analysis

Review Article MMP-9 expression levels and the pathological differentiation of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC): a meta-analysis

The main analysis was based on the MMP-9 expression levels and the differentiation status of OSCC, including 468 individual effect esti- mates from nine studies conducted between 2006 and 2016. In this study, patients with an increased expression of MMP-9 appeared to have a poorer differentiation grade of OSCC than those with lower MMP-9 expression. Several studies have investigated the expres- sion of MMP-9 in human OSCC and its implica- tion in tumor invasion. MMP-9 is up-regulated in OSCC, and the expression levels are related to tumor invasion, lymph involvement and metastases, indicating that it plays an impor- tant role in tumor progression [26]. However, there are no meta-analyses on the association between MMP-9 expression levels and the clin- ical and/or pathological parameters of OSCC. This is the first meta-analysis on the associa- tion between MMP-9 expression levels and the pathological differentiation grades of OSCC. Three of the nine reports included in this analy- sis had limitations [21-23], such as small sam- ple sizes, lack of clinical information, lack of categorization by cancer site as well as an unclear description of the inclusion and exclu- sion criteria. These limitations, particularly the expression levels of MMP-9 with the specific clinical type of OSCC, for example, the severe

The UK’s 1,500 species of pollinators deliver an estimated £680 million annual value to our economy – so there is an economic, as well as an environmental, case for protecting the diversity of the natural world. So, following consultation, the government will use the forthcoming Environment Bill to mandate biodiversity net gain for development in England…

Feedback is showing just how valuable local authorities are finding their PiP support and how they appreciate the reassurance of learning from the expertise of similar local authorities. We are using more Partners in Practice across regional boundaries, matching LAs to support each other based on capability and need. And to further support the growth of RIAs, the Memorandums of

Good afternoon. And thank you for inviting me to speak at this year’s International Higher Education Forum here at Imperial College London on the importance of staying international. Please accept my apologies for not joining you in person. And all credit to the organisers – this Forum is certainly timely! We are now just a few weeks away from the UK’s departure from the EU. So, it is certainly important for us to be looking to the future and considering our relationships with the wider world.

It gave me the chance to shadow some of those out on the frontline working to combat social exclusion, deprivation and antisocial behaviour. One particular moment has guided and informed my thinking ever since. Walking through one of the run-down estates, I asked one of the social workers why the families of the truanting kids they worked with didn’t actively encourage their children to go to school to improve the opportunities available and give them that step up.

I’m going to be speaking on this very issue in more detail at a speech to the British Academy in London tomorrow, but for the purposes of this event, today, it is worth emphasising this government’s intention to remain open and international as we commit to getting Brexit done. The International Research and Innovation Strategy I launched earlier this year best evidences our commitment to global engagement in the science and tech sectors.

Speech : Damian Hinds: Education Secretary sets out five foundations to build character: 7 January 2019

This is done throughout the school day through things like RE lessons but also by reinforcing or encouraging pupils’ self-belief and self worth. Take St Mary of Charity CofE Primary School which I visited recently. It’s part of Aquila, the Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust. It had been rated ‘inadequate’ before joining the trust and is now ‘outstanding’ with a strong school ethos focusing on perseverance and resilience. I asked one 10-year-old what resilience meant and she told me in a very straightforward way: “It’s just believing in yourself, really, isn’t it?”. The pupils, all of whom are an absolute credit to the school, were keen, enthusiastic, willing to try new things.
