Federations

 

See attached map showing federations: ‘East Sussex Federations 2015.pdf’

 

Education Improvement Partnerships

 

See attached spreadsheet showing the Education Improvement Partnerships:
‘East Sussex EIPs 2015.xls’

 

Through our Excellence for All strategy, the local authority is building
on relationships with schools in which partners share accountability and
take different roles within a new ‘mixed economy’ of school improvement. 
The Education Improvement Partnerships are cross-phase partnerships of
schools working together to improve outcomes for children and young
people.  They are now in their second year of operation, and as they
develop, they are embedding new ways of working across their partnerships
to deliver school improvement.  The LA continues to support the Education
Improvement Partnerships to ensure that they have robust action plans in
place, are focused on key priorities and that they have mechanisms in
place to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of their support and
intervention effectively.
