School Improvement Strategy

Learn Sheffield is commissioned by Sheffield City Council to deliver the statutory duties relating to school improvement. This began in September 2015 with the three-year commission and was renewed, for a further three years, in September 2018. The current commission will be completed on 31 August 2021.

A new approach to school improvement, described in the 2016-2018 School Improvement Strategy (below), was developed by working with the primary, secondary and special school sectors throughout 2015/16. Learn Sheffield adopted this school-led approach to school improvement from September 2016 through to the end of the 2018/19 school year.

The latest School Improvement Strategy was developed in the spring of 2019 and was used for the first time from September 2019. The approach was modified in September 2020 in response to the impact of COVID-19.

The current ‘Sheffield School Improvement Strategy 2019-2022’ document will appear below shortly.
