What Allfie has achieved

ALLFIE has been funded by Trust for London to set up the London Voice for Inclusive Education network to support disabled peoples organisations in London to be involved in inclusive education campaigning work.   Whilst some of that work will be about influencing national education legislation and policy, we are also aiming to influence the Mayor of London and Greater London Authority’s education programmes.

GLA Responsibilities 
Whilst the Mayor has no statutory education related duties, she/he does have the power to coordinate and fund education related projects across London. By law, the Mayor must publish a London Plan setting out the strategic direction for long-term development of integrated economic, environmental, transport and social infrastructure initiatives within the capital. In the 2011 London Plan, education and training for young people play a central role in the development of a strong, sustainable and inclusive city.

Mayor of London Education Inquiry
After 2011 London riots, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson commissioned a London-wide education Inquiry in order to establish what support schools may need to raise children and young peoples’ educational attainments and aspirations.    
ALLFIE submitted written evidence to the inquiry on the basis of GLA’s findings that 2/3 of young people who were brought before the courts were reported to have an SEN.

ALLFIE’s Inclusive Education Manifesto for London
ALLFIE published its London Manifesto for Inclusive Education as a lobbying tool for the London Voice for Inclusive Education network and ALLFIE’s London members.  Now the London elections are over and Boris Johnson has been re-elected as Mayor, we have asked for a meeting to discuss how we can work together to transform the education system so that it’s inclusive of all learners.   This what Boris Johnson said in reply to ALLFIE’s request for his support for our Manifesto:  

boris johnson

“…Boris Johnson is extremely supportive of the aspirations behind it (Manifesto for Inclusive Education).  Like you, he is determined to make London an accessible and inclusive city, where all can benefit from the empowering and transformative effect of education.”
