We aim to work in partnership with all schools to raise standards and diminish the achievement gap between different groups and individuals.  

We are responsible for providing school improvement services to maintained schools. Our core offer to maintained schools includes:

  • support
  • monitoring
  • moderation
  • provision of strategic leadership for governance and challenge to schools
  • quality assurance.

We provide the capacity for directly targeted interventions to support schools that require additional support or are judged to require improvement by Ofsted.
