  10. The Importance of Teaching White Paper • Support parents and families through promoting a good supply of strong schools encouraging the development of Academies and Free Schools which reflect the local community. • Ensure fair access to all schools for every child. • Use their democratic mandate to stand up for the interests of parents and children. • Support vulnerable pupils – including Looked After Children, those with Special Educational Needs and those outside mainstream education. • Support maintained schools performing below the floor standards to improve quickly or convert to Academy status with a strong sponsor, and support all other schools which wish to collaborate with them to improve educational performance. • Develop their own school improvement strategies – they will be encouraged to market their school improvement services to all schools, not just those in their immediate geographical area.
