Promoting Community Cohesion in England
Morris, Andrew B.; McDaid, Maggie; Potter, Hugh
School Leadership & Management, v31 n3 p281-296 2011
Following serious disturbances in some northern cities in England in 2001, concerns about possible rising inter-communal tension have led to a statutory duty to promote community cohesion being placed on schools. Inspectors from the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) are required to make judgements in the leadership and management section of their reports on the school's contribution. The published data from the first full year of Ofsted inspections show the Catholic sector to be more effective in contributing to social cohesion than other maintained schools. The significance of these findings is explored and areas for further research are suggested. (Contains 3 tables.)
