The intended readership of the summaries includes head teachers, governors, inspectors, teachers, local authority officers and other stakeholders in education.
About every four weeks subscribers to the service are sent a set nine summaries, usually no longer than two sides of A4 per summary. Subscribers choose whether they want the summaries in hard copy (printed and sent in the post) or electronically (via email). From March 2012, one or two summaries are provided free of charge every month and can be downloaded from the Free Summaries link on the left.
The service aims to provide schools with support by selecting recent and current documents which will help head teachers and their governing bodies by keeping them up to date with the most recent government requirements and initiatives. Sometimes documents of more general interest such as innovative ideas or research papers are also included.
Subscription fees are related to the size of your organisation and the extent to which you intend to distribute the summaries. If you are thinking of subscribing, please enquire about a free trial.
