Where are you on your journey to becoming a great school? At SSAT, we know teachers and leaders in every school are striving to overcome different challenges to deliver a world class learning experience for the children they serve. Built around the SSAT Framework for Exceptional Education (FfEE) we offer a range of flexible solutions through in-school support and supported self-evaluation tools covering all school priority areas.
Framework for Exceptional Education
The Framework for Exceptional Education (FfEE) is SSAT’s flagship school improvement and planning tool. It is designed to support schools with reviewing their practice and planning for further development. It was written by the education team at SSAT with the support of a pilot group of schools from the Leading Edge network.
Improving Whole School Attendance and Punctuality
At SSAT we know from our conversations with school leaders that securing and maintaining high levels of attendance, whatever your context and no matter what the challenges, has to be tackled as a priority.
School Culture Audit
As the saying goes culture is “the way we do things around here”. No matter whether you are a high performing school or one seeking to implement improvement, understanding the culture and sub-cultures that exist is key to a successful future.
Race and Equalities Audit
Conduct a Race and Equalities Audit to help you gain deeper understanding of your school community and the next steps you can take together.
Parental Partnership Accreditation
This accreditation recognises the highly effective work that member schools do to engage and collaborate with parents and carers. It provides a national standard for schools to benchmark their practice against and national recognition of effective partnership work with parents and carers.
RACE Charter Mark
