Strategic School Improvement Fund
SSIF is open to teaching schools, MATs and local authorities to support building a school-led system. Applications must be supported by evidence that demonstrates why the proposed improvement approach is expected to drive up standards in schools. The £140 million fund supports a broad range of school improvement activities including, but not limited to, improving leadership, governance, teaching methods and approaches, and financial health and efficiency. You can see more details on the DfE website.
GL Assessment has already supported 10 SSIF projects, as a key partner in measuring impact and effectiveness. Contact us to learn more about the work we are already doing to support these projects, and how we can help with your application to this new funding stream.
Our Cross Academy Trust report enables a Trust to compare the assessment results of all academies within a Trust. With this information, you can:
"The results provide a snapshot of where each pupil is, gives us a measurement of progress over time and automatically takes care of the moderation and standardisation we require. It promotes the sharing of best practice across the Trust."
