We are the ‘glue’ supporting partnership and collaboration between schools so no school is left isolated and vulnerable. We provide a central place for schools to go where they know they can find high quality support, information and professional learning opportunities.
We believe that all Surrey children are our collective responsibility and working in partnership, drawing on our collective strengths, we can support each other to do the best for every child through excellent education.
We are an independent not-for-profit school improvement organisation that is owned and governed by schools (80%) in partnership with Surrey Local Authority and the six Dioceses in Surrey. We represent the voice of our local schools, regardless of phase or status and seek to create a contemporary middle tier. Working together, we are building on and developing successful and existing partnership work, including that led by the teaching schools.
The local authority has also commissioned us to deliver its statutory school improvement service for three years from September 2019.
We know the strengths and needs of our schools through rigorous self-evaluation, partnership working, our school improvement team and our system leader consultants. This means that we can tailor our support and commission learning opportunities to address the needs of our communities.
We will ensure all schools receive the support and challenge they need to develop and improve.
We work with schools to help them know themselves well and welcome challenge from each other through effective partnerships to help them be the best they can and ensure no school fails.
We will provide a directory of excellence, expertise and professional learning opportunities provided by schools for schools to support career development and progression for school professionals.
We will provide high quality leadership development networks and briefings.
We facilitate leaders, teachers and other professionals to become reflective practitioners, building on research and sharing of best practice between themselves and our wider partners.
