Vision for the Education System in Slough

We have a shared ambition with our school and setting leaders that every child should have an opportunity to fulfil their potential in order to live happy, healthy and successful lives. The school- led improvement system will be at the heart of achieving that aim for excellence through robust challenge, support and collaboration.

Partnerships have a key role to play because they provide a rich combination of high expectations, innovative thinking and a strong community, within which all learners can thrive and achieve. We will develop a strong partnership approach across the Slough education community, working together to strengthen schools or settings and raise standards for all children, including the most vulnerable. We will take a proactive, collaborative approach to school improvement, developing the capacity of our schools and settings both to drive continuous improvement in their own institution and to reach out to support others.

The Local Authority (LA) will provide a strategic overview to facilitate and empower system improvement.  We will sustain effective links with all local and regional partners including the Slough Teaching School Alliance, Regional Schools Commissioner and Ofsted, championing a positive approach which welcomes constructive challenge.
