The DfE has funded a School Improvement Monitoring and Brokering Grant since September 2017. The purpose of this grant is to allow Local Authorities to continue to monitor performance of schools, broker school improvement provision and intervene as appropriate.
Buckinghamshire County Council will use these monies to:
- Provide reimbursement of Champion costs and expenses to Support Schools
- Provide financial support for Enhancement Group projects
- Provide financial assistance for specific projects including work related to SEND and Inclusion
- Fund a Side by Side Development Officer to facilitate the side by side deployment process
