School Partnership Strategy

Find out about the Essex strategic partnership behind improving school performance.


The School Partnership Strategy aims to work with schools, diocese and governors to improve schools and tackle underperformance. It also aims to mature partnerships into accelerators of school improvement and help them become enablers and drivers of education strategy.

This means partnerships will have a tangible, sustainable impact on school improvement outcomes for children, young people, school staff and the wider community through:

  • direct partnership working
  • partnership-to-partnership working
  • shaping and implementing wider education strategies
