Supporting Other Schools


School to school support is defined as the way that schools use their own good practise to deliver bespoke support packages for schools in need, which leads to positive impact with measurable outcomes. It can bring a powerful focus to bear on an aspect of a schools practice that is unsatisfactory and this may mean the effective deployment of skilled staff to develop a shared understanding of quality and to accelerate the pace of professional learning in practice. StSS support occurs through leadership support for headteachers, senior leaders and governors. StSS support might include some of the following activities:

  • An audit of need to critically analyse the issues
  • Support/help to construct an improvement plan
  • Devise bespoke solutions
  • Foster joint practice development
  • Support and challenge through firm, focused conversations
  • Monitor progress against KPI milestones
  • Build capacity and secure sustainability
