SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT

Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better.

Dylan William

School leaders in our Trust are part of the School Improvement Team. This team is coordinated by our Executive Leader for School Improvement and is built upon the core principles of excellent teaching; the use of best evidence to inform decision making; building a culture of improvement and ensuring high quality professional development is available for our staff.

Truly effective school improvement is based upon effective and authentic collaboration. Effective collaboration is built upon connection: genuine human connection. Schools do not have to go it alone and can share ideas, expertise and experiences with evidence-based improvement strategies. Support from each other and from the School Improvement Lead means that school leaders, middle leaders, teachers and any other adults that work in the schools have opportunities to work together through routinely systematised structures, not facilitated by an organisation outside of the school. A range of networks to enable people to collaborate, share ideas and help one another in subject leadership; pastoral care; teaching and leadership exist across the Trust.

To support decision making and allocate resources effectively, it is vital to first diagnose the needs of the school through robust and forensic review processes. Appropriate intervention can then be put in place as part of school improvement strategies and then strong evaluation processes can determine if those plans had the desired impact.
