We have a long and successful record of accomplishment of working with or for local authorities in a wide number of areas, including the development of senior leaders and elected members, home-to-school transport, special educational needs and governor support.
Improving services and reducing costs
An innovative partnership with Barnet Council between 2016 and 2020 saw us deliver the full range of council education and skills services including school improvement, school admissions, and services for children with special educational needs. By 2020 96.8% of Barnet schools were good or outstanding and Barnet was in the top 10% for almost all measures and the top 5% for many of the measures. The £1.885m budget savings target for the service had been achieved and the excellent relationship with schools was maintained.
Niche service improvement
In the London Borough of Islington the Ethnic Minority Achievement Service worked in partnership with schools and local authorities to raise the attainment of minority pupils, through consultancy, training, support and guidance.
