The Government education bodies in England & Wales, the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), produce much that is of value to educators. However it does tend to be produced by ever expanding and name changing government departments and then hidden away in the depths of byzantine, dry, lacklustre official websites. The intention of this page is to make finding what is of value a little easier.

Independent Education News 
  • Google news aggregator for UK Education:
   
  • World Education in the News NewsNow. From the same aggregator, this time with English language news items from across the globe. You can configure the page to just show items from a particular region or country if you wish. 

Government Agency News
These are useful news sites from key government agencies (with the exception of NewsNow & Google). Much are made-for-the-press Press releases, but they are an easy way to keep abreast of what is actually happening. They will also send you the releases as emails.
  • DfE News Centre News about schools from the Department for Education. The most recent items are shown below:

This is the really heavy stuff....
Dry and uninspiring in presentation, difficult to seek out - almost as if they are not supposed to be read. Really only if you want to go into local education management perhaps (or if you don't have enough marking....)
