School to School Support

We recognise the important role of middle and senior leaders in supporting their peers in other schools. We can provide schools in need of support with a task force of leaders, teachers and school practitioners, experts in their respective fields and qualified to support others to improve teaching, learning and outcomes.

We can ensure that the best leaders are working to improve the quality of teaching and leadership where it is most needed.

Whole School Reviews

Pupil Premium review

A pupil premium review looks at how your school is spending its pupil premium funding. The purpose of the review is to improve your school’s pupil premium strategy, so that you spend the funding on approaches shown to be effective in improving the achievement of disadvantaged pupils.

SEND review

A SEND review looks at how your education setting provides for students with special educational needs and disabilities. The review findings will help you improve your SEND provision and strategy so you can help young people achieve good outcomes.

MAT SEND review

The MAT Review aims to support MATs in developing an understanding of effective ways to meet the requirements of all learners. For this process to have the necessary impact on learner outcomes, the MAT should have the confidence to state what it can do well and what it needs further support with. The relationship between the reviewer and the MAT must be an open, honest and collaborative one.
