Guernsey’s Education Committee is ‘reassuring’ teachers that they will be involved in the process of creating a plan for the future of the education system, ITV News reports.

It’s after a teachers’ union slammed the government’s handling of scrapping the eleven plus exam and the Grammar School.

But the committee want to “reassure the NASUWT, NUT and other unions that their views are important”.

The group of deputies say they’ve been given “very clear direction” to work up a detailed plan of how a three-school system will work.

A statement said, “There are a number of options that will deliver this direction…The committee needs to consider the pros and cons of all the possible three school models.”

They will consult other politicians on January 25, before seeking the views of those who work in education.
