Peer Review

Since September 2016, Focus-Trust have been proud to work with Education Development Trust’s Schools Partnership Programme (SPP) model of Peer Review.

The programme’s vision is ‘To build a sustainable, self-improving, school-led system where schools are jointly responsible for the improvement of themselves and others.

SPP’s model is a sector-led, cluster-based approach to school improvement that has worked with over 800 schools and larger local systems to date

The model develops the capacity and culture needed for impactful cluster working through a continuous cycle of school self-review, peer review and school-to-school support and improvement.

The Principals and Improvement Champions have been privileged to work with Jane Creasy.

Such is our commitment to the power and potential of peer review, that this year we have embarked on a MAT to MAT Peer Review with Discovery Trust facilitated by Forum Education.  This has been a very beneficial experience for all involved.
