School Improvement Service: EYFS, Primary, Secondary (11-19) [See also Governor Services]
The School Improvement Service in the Royal Borough of Greenwich consists of highly skilled and qualified advisors who are totally committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for children and young people.

We have a history of strong partnership work with schools and settings which has contributed to the transformation of outcomes for children and young people in Royal Greenwich.

We will work in partnership to provide well matched, bespoke programmes which will challenge all schools and settings to improve their offer.

Leadership and curriculum support can be provided by specific advisors, who have had considerable success in raising standards and improving teaching and learning. They will work with you to provide effective support, specific to the needs of your school.

Governor Services provide high quality professional clerking, crucial to the effective functioning of governing boards. The Governor Services team help governing boards to understand their role, function and the legal duties of school leadership and management.

These packages are focused on building capacity so that you can continue your journey towards high quality education for all. In addition, the PAS can provide in-depth data analysis to support this work.

Our services are available to any individual or organisation involved in the education and care of children and young people.
