Improvement Partner Programme (IP)

How can we help you?

  • (Sept 2019 - July 2020)
    • School Improvement Partners provide a single point of contact for the school. They work with school leaders to support, challenge and validate self-evaluation.
    • They are able to facilitate teaching and learning reviews and support the development of leadership at all levels. They can assist schools in preparation for Ofsted inspections, including desktop surveys of school websites, data and documentation.
    • Working across a multi-disciplinary School Improvement Service they are also able to broker bespoke CPD and facilitate the sharing of best practice.
  • Improvement Partner
    • Your Improvement Partner will provide three half day visits over the academic year, which are tailored to meet your school’s needs. You will receive a record of each visit, which can be part of your evidence of external challenge and validation.
  • The Improvement Partner will:
    • Discuss and agree the required support for the year
    • Ensure visits support the school’s improvement priorities
    • Provide relevant email or telephone support
  • Headteacher Performance Management
    • Royal Greenwich can provide external advisors for Headteacher performance management.

Costs

  • Improvement Partner Programme - £1750 per academic year
  • Headteacher performance management - £550
Bespoke options and costs can also be tailored for schools working in partnerships or academies, including MATs.

You can also commission additional bespoke support through the Direct Services website.
For Royal Borough of Greenwich schools that are part of the Local Authority and School Monitoring Meeting (LASMM) process, the cost of the IP programme will be met by the local authority as part of the package of targeted support.
