Following on from the 1989 Review of educational standards in the London Borough of Newham - which made many recommendations for improvement - NFER was commissioned by the Borough to undertake a second review in 1996. This Review has found that Newham has moved from being a reactive and defensive authority which sought to achieve short-term objectives through a series of haphazard initiatives and policy directives to an authority which has a clear vision and sense of purpose, a real commitment to raise achievement through a constructive partnership with all the stakeholders in the education service, and coherent strategies for achieving improvements and delivering the Council's vision.
