The purpose of the Reducing Bureaucracy sub group will be to discuss the development and implementation of the programme of work to reduce bureaucracy in schools. The group will focus on the following three areas:
i) ideas on how best the Department for Education can free schools from external control and remove unnecessary bureaucracy;
ii) views on a ‘core minimum’ of requirements and guidance which should be in place for schools to run effectively and safely; and
iii) possible actions and measures to reduce the additional burdens imposed on schools from outside of the Department.
The sub group will support the Government’s priorities by providing a forum for members to work together constructively with DfE, contributing their professional and organisational perspectives to the consideration of the Secretary of State’s commitment to reduce bureaucracy in schools.
Principles and Terms of Reference underpinning the sub group will be as follows:
The sub group will operate by means of a bi-monthly meeting, chaired by Department of Education officials, attended by the named representative of each organisation.
