Do you have any further plans to lobby the Secretary of State for Education to establish a single Regional schools commissioner for London, and to ensure this position is either in the employ of the Greater London Authority or in close coordination with it?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Department for Education has appointed 3 Commissioners to cover London.


My Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture has met with the Regional School Commissioners and will continue to engage with them in relation to London to ensure co-ordination across London on education matters in collaboration with other key stakeholders including local authorities. My officers will continue to monitor the system.
