Example text

All three schools (located in the lower middle of the academic league table for Greenvale LEA) continue to be broadly similar in character, reputation, status and popularity, offering a comprehensive education to a wide ability range of pupils. DO PARENTS WANT DIVERSITY? One of the PASCI study’s methods of investigation consists of annual surveys of parents in each of the case study areas. Three surveys were conducted in each year from 1993 to 1995. The survey population was made up of all parents with a child transferring to secondary schooling in the survey year.

At Newcrest, school managers, having secured money under the Technology Schools Initiative, used the additional funds to facilitate a differentiation strategy around technology. The school’s name was changed, a school uniform introduced and technology brought into all curricular areas, with in-service training for staff. In introducing a type of curricular diversity into Northern Heights, Newcrest aims to attract more middle-class parents and thereby increase its intake of above average ability pupils.

The development of this conceptualisation of parental concerns is continuing as analysis of the PASCI data progresses. 8 It should not be assumed, however, that any school’s ‘caring’ and academic policies are necessarily antithetical: they may take different forms and be combined in varying, mutually beneficial ways.
