School ​Effectiveness Services

The drive for excellence and effectiveness in all church schools is of paramount importance to Guildford Diocese Education. 

Our school effectiveness aims to provide services to our schools in the new school-led system. We work closely with other partners and compliment the statutory work of the Local Authority. Our aim is to walk alongside schools, supporting them in providing high quality education inspired by Christian values, so that children may face the future with confidence.

What schools receive

Our high calibre officers and consultants, including National Leaders and Specialist Leaders of Education with a proven track record of success, bring a wealth of expertise from a wide range of education disciplines. 

This provision covers the following broad areas:

  • Safeguarding
  • Christian distinctiveness of church schools
  • School improvement, through a team of associate education consultants
  • Continuing professional development for headteachers, governors, teachers and other staff

Designed specifically for church schools and church school academies within Guildford Diocese, we offer a tiered annual agreement, encompassing these three aspects of school improvement, called Education Services to Schools. Through this partnership we can respond both proactively and appropriately, so schools can benefit from the best possible service at the best value available. Find out how Education Services to Schools can benefit your school.
