School Improvement & Equalities

School improvement and equalities

Welcome to Buckinghamshire Council School Improvement.

Education is a fast-paced and dynamic profession, ever changing and innovating. We recognise that, as leaders, teachers and education professionals, your focus is the children and young people in your care.

We understand that:

  • Keeping up to date and ahead of the educational curve can be a challenge
  • The need to fix an unexpected problem or challenge could occur at any time.
  • Teaching and school performance has to be exceptional if children and young people are to get the very best life chances.

We are here to support you.

We know that delivering the best possible educational outcomes for children is your main priority and the importance of having the right support in place for your school is paramount.

Click here for the Headteacher handbook. This will have information for each department that falls under Children's Services within Buckinghamshire Council. Please note that this is a live document and will be updated when required.

We want to work in partnership with you.

We are passionate about children getting the best education and all our services are driven by this common purpose that we share with you, measured by the success of your school and the progress of your pupils. We understand the complexities of the schools’ market and the issues that schools face every day. 

Whether you are looking for help with school improvement, wish to improve the efficiency of running your school or simply need to ensure your pupils’ safety on a school trip we are here to help.
