Our school improvement service will support you to be compliant in:

We can also provide bespoke packages, or add extra days during the year to address specific, changing, or urgent needs.

Our standard annual service includes: 

1. Review of Analyse School Performance (ASP)

This is a supportive and rigorous analysis of school progress and attainment data to support the productive of an effective and robust school improvement plan.

2. Termly school improvement visits with reports

These school improvement visits support you to evaluate current practice and identify priorities for improvement.

3. Support with self-evaluation and action planning

This is a collaborative process between consultant and Headteacher. Using evidence to evaluate the impact of the school’s provision, you will then be supported to identify the most important priorities for improvement and establish appropriate measurable success criteria for your school improvement plan. .

4. Headteacher’s performance management

The allocated consultant will act as the school’s external adviser, providing advice to governors and support to the Headteacher on target setting and performance in line with best practice and government requirements. There will be a written statement following the visit.

5. Online or telephone advisory helpline for the Headteacher and chair of governors

If you have any queries regarding school improvement, HR, or legal issues we will provide support via email within 36 hours. If you prefer to talk to someone on the phone about a concern this can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.
