We work in close partnership with local authorities across England; helping them fulfil their statutory duties and improve the outcomes for children and young people.
We help them define an authority-wide strategy for school improvement with their schools. We chair independent focus groups of headteachers and principals to find out what the local strategy should include and use the outcomes of school reviews to inform the process.
Providing the full range of education services
Over the years we have delivered a wide range of education services, either independently or as part of a full managed service. This includes:
• School improvement, including school audit and development
• SEN services, including education psychology and SEN transport
• Education welfare
• Ethnic minority achievement
• School admissions
• Governor Support
• Teacher development
• Early Years
• School place planning
• Post 16
• Virtual School
Fifth most improved county in England
We work with Norfolk County Council to supply Education Challenge Partners (ECPs) and to train Norfolk headteachers to become ECPs; helping establish a sustainable model for part of Norfolk's school improvement programme. Since 2012 they have seen a 32% point increase in good or outstanding secondary schools and 27% increase for primary schools.
Having Cambridge Education as a partner has enabled Norfolk LA to improve its systems for supporting school improvement in a different way.
