Bromley Educational Trust

School Improvement

We deliver a bespoke School Improvement Programme in partnership with your school. If your school has been judged by Ofsted as requiring improvement, we will work with you to identify what needs to be done and provide all necessary support.

We help you by:

  • Analysing your pupil-level data in all key stages
  • Identify specific areas where performance falls short of national expectations
  • Ascertain the causes of any shortfalls
  • Support you in implementing these actions

We draw on the resources of London South East College – with support in the following areas:

Property, Estates, Health & Safety, Buildings and Infrastructure developments
