System led school improvement model

This page provides information for all Lancashire schools, sixth forms and early years providers about the new delivery model for school improvement.

30 locality networks of schools will work alongside established school partnerships and networks. These will be cross phase, bringing together:

  • early years providers
  • primary schools
  • secondary schools
  • special schools
  • providers offering alternative provision

School advisers will facilitate the networks and support schools to access support from the relevant services to tackle issues impacting on educational outcomes for children and young people through local joint working (an approach commonly known as a 'team around the school').
