Quality Standards and Performance Service (Schools)
Quality Education Professionals
The Local Authority offers a menu of external support and challenge, from serving or former headteachers or equivalent, which schools may wish to purchase. This is not a traditional service level agreement at a fixed cost, but a bespoke, negotiated package of support tailored to the school's requirements.
The Local Authority offers a service that will support schools in analysing a wide range of education data at school and pupil level for self evaluation/improvement planning purposes and in preparation for Ofsted inspections.

The Local Authority (LA) supports schools to ensure that they administer the statutory assessments and reporting arrangements appropriately.
