A bespoke package from School Support Solutions enables a cluster of schools or Multi-Academy Trust to tailor the support required to meet the needs of the group as well as each individual school. There are a wide range of services to choose from, as outlined in the school improvement and headteacher support services sections of our website, however additional services can be negotiated.
Below is an example of a school cluster package we have been commissioned to provide for the past 5 years.
1 day per week, term time only, to deliver the following support package to a cluster of 20 schools in the North Cotswolds.
If your school cluster is interested in commissioning our services, we can provide a bespoke package to meet the needs of the group. Please contact us here.
'Mrs Heming has been extremely supportive of the school in a wide variety of ways since her appointment as cluster manager. She has supported the Head and school governors in conducting the Headteacher’s performance management in a timely and professional manner, offering them advice and making helpful suggestions in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. Mrs Heming has been proactive in synthesising and analysing the latest educational research and bulletins, enabling Heads to be well informed and kept abreast of the latest educational thinking and legalities. She has developed cluster policies which have been extremely beneficial in helping schools maintain their legal obligations as well as ensuring policies are extremely thorough and agreed between neighbouring schools. This gives a real sense of strength to the polices and encourages collaborative working between schools. On a personal note Mrs Heming has been incredibly supportive to the staff and myself over a long period of time following the unexpected death of a senior member of staff and all the challenges that this has presented.'
Rebecca Scutt, Headteacher of Stow-on-the-Wold Primary School, Gloucestershire
