School Improvement: Secondary

What do we offer?

The Secondary School Improvement Team plays an important role in helping Swindon to meet its vision for children and young people, as set out in the Swindon Education Strategy: 

The Vision: For every child, irrespective of background, to fulfil their potential through the best education possible. 

Our commitment is to champion excellence so that “Every school should be at least a good school” .

We provide support and challenge both to promote high quality leadership and management and to raise achievement for children and pupils, across Swindon’s secondary schools.

We provide free advice to targeted LA maintained schools, as defined in our Education Improvement Strategy, and fulfil the Local Authority’s statutory duties. Where appropriate we broker school to school support.

In addition, we are able to offer a traded service of support and challenge to other schools, including academies and free schools e.g. school reviews, head-teacher performance management, external validation of teaching and learning, support for the journey to become part of a MAT, supporting partnership work and school-to-school support and also offer or commission relevant professional development opportunities for leaders, teachers and governing bodies, often facilitated through Swindon’s Teaching School.

What is provided free? 

We provide free advice to targeted LA maintained schools, as defined in our Education Improvement Strategy, and fulfil the Local Authority’s statutory duties.
