The School to School support commissioning process is detailed below. If you would like to know more please contact Sarah Robertson via firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 01400 659009
Request for School to School (S2S) support is made to LEARN. This could come, for example, from a Local Authority/School/National College/Department of Education/another Teaching Centre.
REQUEST IS RECEIVED
Request goes to Sarah Robertson who is in change of School to School Support Strategy.
WORK IS BROKERED
S2S Lead contacts school and brokers work. Needs are confirmed, and costs presented. Specialist Leaders in Education and/or other members of the LEARN team are identified. First meeting arranged and Lead Senior Leader from LEARN is named. This process takes account of school phase/school context/location & geography / specific experience / working style & approach.
LEARN Senior Lead and/or LEARN Consultants go to meet Head or nominated lead from the school requesting support for initial discussion with appropriate senior staff. The meeting will cover: focus of work, expectations for outcomes, funding, length of deployment, frequency.
All parties sign up to a contracting agreement (including action plan), reflecting the agreed terms for the deployment.
Consultant completes short summary of action each visit. Time sheets submitted to the school of the Consultant, and that school sends a monthly invoice to supported school.
Is the support working? Is it appropriate? Any changes? Next steps. Consider if support should continue? If not, a final timescale and exit strategy agreed.
FINAL WRITTEN REVIEW
Final written review and impact evaluation written by Head of client school. Sent to the LEARN National Leader of Education in exchange of School to School Support Strategy and disseminated to the Consultants and schools involved.
