School Improvement

The Orchard Learning Alliance is committed to providing high quality educational experiences in all our schools, ensuring that all pupils thrive regardless of their background.

School improvement is at the heart of the Orchard Learning Alliance and experienced School Support Partners work collaboratively with colleagues in schools to share good practise and improve educational outcomes.  All schools in the Orchard Learning Alliance receive robust challenge and support so that all children are taught in excellent schools.  Support Partners work alongside leaders and their staff providing bespoke professional development and supporting head teachers to achieve their school improvement priorities.

Whilst valuing each school’s individual curriculum, it is the role of the School Support Partners to offer advice and guidance, respond to need, and draw upon the expertise from within and outside the trust; thus ensuring that pupils within OLA schools receive an excellent education.
