What we do
The School Improvement Service acts as a champion for children and young people by holding schools to account for the educational achievement and wellbeing of all pupils.
The service works with all schools, academies and colleges in North Lincolnshire, which includes infant schools, junior schools, primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form colleges, special schools and pupil referral units. The School Improvement Service also works closely with other services in the education division (Professional Standards, Early Years, Vulnerable Children and Young People and Education Psychology) and others across the council.
How we do this
- Monitor and evaluate the performance of schools
- Work in partnership with our schools, academies and colleges and secure their engagement
- Help them evaluate their impact on pupil outcomes and decide on the right improvement priorities
- Provide different levels of challenge and support, including school improvement partners for all schools
- Intervene early in schools of concern to bring rapid improvement
- Promote and assist partnerships between schools to share good practice and build capacity
- Fulfil statutory duties and council priorities
