The service ensures you have access to significant support from the local authority. This includes school improvement support or support in preparation and during Ofsted or extra time, should your school find itself in challenging circumstances or in need of urgent help. The service is provided by School Partnership Advisers (SPAs) and LA staff.
This service is available for all school leaders and governors who work in Brighton and Hove maintained schools and academies.
For 2019/20 the cost for the full service with its insurance element and three ‘day’ direct school improvement support is £1,489.
Direct school improvement support is calculated on a ‘day’ basis and would include preparation and report writing. 1 day = 7 hours (excluding any break for lunch).
Bespoke additional SPA days can be purchased at the reduced rate of £400 per day (usual rate £500). These could include the options such as Deep Dive Reviews and Ofsted readiness checks or something more bespoke for your school.
