Focussed School Reviews

Single school and MAT wide safeguarding review
Our safeguarding review complies with current DfE guidelines and the common inspection framework. During the review we will assess the safeguarding practices within your school from the top down analysing policies, practices and procedures and site security in order to support you to become fully compliant. The safeguarding review will be followed by a written report, which will take the form of a development plan with practical guidance to ensure you feel supported to make any recommended improvements.

Single school and MAT wide Pupil Premium review
Our pupil premium review complies with current DfE guidelines and the common inspection framework. During the review we will assess the pupil premium provision within your school from the top down, analysing policies, practices and procedures to ensure they are robust and support students. The pupil premium review will be followed by a written report, which will take the form of a development plan with practical guidance to ensure you feel supported to make any recommended improvements.

Single school and MAT wide Governing Body/Senior Leadership review
This intensive review process can be applied to the Governing Body of your school, the senior leadership of your school or both. Our expert consultants will:

  • Carry out a skills analysis
  • Interview all governors and/or senior leaders
  • Assess whether the governing body/senior leadership team understand and agree on the current main priorities of the school 
  • Audit training needs 
  • Produce a development plan for improvements going forward
Single School and MAT wide financial and staff audit and recovery plan
With a rapidly changing education landscape, school leaders now face unprecedented challenges. In addition to improving and maintaining educational standards, school leaders now need to consider managing intake and roll alongside decreasing annual budgets, and streamlining resources to ensure long term and sustainable financial viability. We will carry out a detailed review of your current operational structures. By analysing internal teaching, learning and support structures we will assist your school in developing an operational model which is both optimal to present circumstances but also sustainable into the future. We do this in two ways: 

First, we will produce a detailed Review Report of your organisational structure and operations. This will enable you to make a better-informed judgement as to whether you have the right structure in place.

Second, we will draft a recovery plan setting our recommendations as to any remodeling or restructuring, which we feel is desirable to bring about necessary change.

"Thank you for preparing and delivering a most informative presentation yesterday. As a headteacher, many of the courses on offer just make you think slightly differently about they way you do things. Very rarely, do I come back with a whole list of ideas that will improve the way we run our school whilst enhancing our provision. I like that your advice and suggestions weren't just about the dreaded visit, but was sound school improvement strategies. ” Elaine D'Souza, Headteacher, Hermitage Primary School
