Description

 

The Council wishes to establish a Contract for the provision of Schools Improvement Services. School improvement remains a key focus for the Council in delivering our vision and therefore the Council is seeking to commission arrangements with a Provider who can develop a clear strategy for improvement. The strategy will extend across statutory school age provision which includes Primary, Secondary and Special in maintained and academy schools so that all stakeholders understand the vision and direction for educational improvement in the city. The strategy must be clear to drive improvement at key assessment points where performance is weak particularly for maintained but also for all schools across the city for vulnerable groups.

The Provider will be expected to provide a local face for education, allowing schools to shape local service offers and support and challenge schools individually or in groups.

The Provider will be required to monitor, challenge and support schools to ensure the highest possible standards of education in Birmingham. The Provider must establish solid and robust data intelligence to identify schools that may require support and challenge and swiftly intervene where performance is declining. The Provider must in addition, deliver a programme which ensures that schools remain ‘good’ and that improvements are maintained.

The Contract will last for up to 7 years with a break clause after years 3 and 5 unless terminated under the terms and conditions of contract.

The contract will be awarded to one successful tenderer only.
