Peer Improvement Pathway

The Peer Improvement Pathway pilot project is now underway and Keystone has 6 schools within its Hub.  Each school has previously engaged in some form of Peer Review and will now be using the EEF guidance ‘Putting Evidence to Work: A School’s Guide to Implementation’ in order to formulate action plans.  Our Enquiry Lead will be facilitating 3 cluster meetings over the year using research to inform practice.  As part of these meetings, 3 of the schools will showcase areas of the school which are working well.  We hope that this enquiry process will provide high support/high challenge to all those involved, in order act as a powerful school improvement tool.  The project will last for the academic year 2019/2020 but we hope will continue beyond this.  Should you be interested in future projects then please let us know.
