Performance and Standards

BEP is committed to securing the best possible education for every child and young person living within our city.

The team carrying the School Improvement contract from BCC  focus on two aspects of support for schools:

  • The first is providing support for Priority (maintained) Schools that Ofsted have judged to be inadequate or requires improvement plus good/outstanding schools which may be  vulnerable to a decline in Ofsted judgements.

  • Secondly, we work to support all schools to raise attainment, maintained and academy, in all sectors and phases.

As most of our work is based on finding and brokering school to school support, our central office education  team is small but made up of  highly effective and experienced Headteachers and Senior Leaders, who work with schools collectively and individually to ensure rapid and sustained School Improvement.
