Sheffield City Council is to hold meetings with head teachers to explain sweeping education changes in an attempt to rebuild confidence in the council, reports the Yorkshire Post (p5).

School budgets, class sizes and poor classroom maintenance in Sheffield have been attacked over the past three years by unions, head teachers and governors.

Council education director Jonathan Crossley-Holland has proposed a series of changes to better manage the service, including creating posts to build close liaison between schools and council and giving schools a greater share of the education budget to oversee.

The changes would mean the loss of 25 existing positions at the department. Meetings have been scheduled with head teachers to explain the proposals.
