School Effectiveness Support

School Effectiveness Support Service Level Agreement (SLA)

The Worcester Diocesan Education Team provides a School Effectiveness Support SLA, which is available to all church, faith and community schools. The services which it contains have been developed in response to a growing need within schools for trustworthy, challenging, robust and compassionate support, in a wide range of school improvement areas. 

Our ambition is for all children to access the quality of education they need and deserve. By enabling and developing strong school leadership through bespoke support, we work in partnership with schools to bring about the best possible education for children and young people. 

All school effectiveness packages and services are non-profit making and have been priced to solely cover costs. Further information on school effectiveness support procedures, packages and pricing is available within the School Effectiveness Support SLA

Please contact Laura Farmer by telephone on 01905 732 825, or by email on, if you would like to discuss our school effectiveness support services in further detail. 

Further information on training is set out in our diocesan Training and Support SLA, which is available on our Training and Support webpage.

Currently, we offer two collaborative packages: 

Package 1: Sustainable Church School Leadership

This package has been designed to empower headteachers and senior leaders with the means to secure effective teaching, learning and self-evaluation. Securing pedagogical leadership at all levels is a key challenge for many schools and this course provides the opportunity to further develop the skills and understanding to do this effectively. 

Package 2: Quality First Teaching and Learning

This package consists of three twilight training sessions, to develop the use of: sequences of learning, learning objectives and success criteria. Senior leaders, middle leaders, core subject leaders and teaching staff would all find these sessions beneficial.

Further information on these packages, including costs, are available within the School Effectiveness Training Packages flyer under the 'Related attachments' tab below. 

Please contact Laura Farmer to book a place for either Package.

This package has been designed to empower middle and subject leaders, encouraging them to develop their own vision and values, whilst developing effective teaching and learning through strong pedagogical principles. The programme will include the opportunity to engage in action research across different schools in action research triads, within the course participant group. 

This programme consists of three separate full days of training, with an additional half day to share future intentions and impact of actions undertaken.
