Bexley Education Support Service Brochure 19-20 We are delighted to present our new support offer for 2019-20, and as you browse through the brochure, I trust many of you will recognise that this is an offer that has been built with you, reflecting what you have indicated is needed and drawing in partner expertise to ensure that you can access high quality support locally. We continue to operate within a national educational landscape which reflects that society faces significant challenges and a pace of change that is unprecedented. My team want to stand alongside you to meet our shared ambition that all children will thrive now and in the future. The partnership approach that you requested has shaped the journey whilst developing the offer. We asked Heads and MAT leaders what you needed and where you felt there were gaps in what was available. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the head teachers and multi-academy trust leaders who have given their time to support this work. You told us that recruitment remains a challenge and the offer anticipates the early career framework for teachers as well as providing on-going opportunities for developing all teachers and leaders, drawing on the Bexley Teaching School Alliance expertise. We are delighted to work with nationally renowned leaders and organisations, with elements of the offer representing cutting edge research, ideas and thought leadership. There are some potential solutions to local challenges; we are pleased to be able to offer the SENCo accreditation locally as well as work that responds to both current inspection themes and recognises the implications of the draft framework. Perhaps most importantly, I would like to draw your attention to our values as these demonstrate how Bexley Education Support Service seeks to complement the development of an exceptional local education system. Our intention is to be a niche provider of school improvement support because of our approach to partnership working. I am confident that you will see over the following pages an enhanced core offer to schools; and if you are a Bexley school, I look forward to outlining in the summer term how the offer connects to our new school improvement model. Yours faithfully, Lauren Ovenden Head of Strategic Education Partnership and School and College Improvement
