That Cabinet agreed the recommendations of the report as follows:

2.     Cabinet agreed to delegate to the Cabinet Member for Education and Cildhildhildren’s Services, a decision to agree for officers to develop detailed proposals within schools, the Education Improvement Partnership (EIP) and Hounslow Learning Partnership (HLP) for a new partnership model for education.
