The purpose of the Families of Schools documents is to help schools see how others with similar intakes serve their pupils. Headteachers in the London, Black Country and Manchester Challenges had access to a similar resource and really valued it as helpful so, we hope you take the time to familiarise yourself with it.
Schools in Birmingham face a number of challenges. They also boast an enormous collective pool of expert leaders and teachers. The purpose of the documents are to point you towards similar schools facing similar circumstances with whom you can share practice and experiences. Whatever the problem, the documents show there are always schools to whom you can turn and this is a very important and powerful school improvement tool.
On Tuesday 22nd January 2019, we had a successful Families of Schools event for KS2 followed by a presentation from James McNeillie consulting on the new framework.
You can view the presentation James gave on the Education Inspection Framework below.
A Government consultation was run from 16 January to 5 April 2019, and can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/education-inspection-framework-2019-inspecting-the-substance-of-education.
