Inquiry Focused School Improvement

This guidance will assist schools and other educational settings in providing advice for pupils, students, staff and parents or carers regarding:

  • the novel coronavirus, COVID-19,
  • how to help prevent spread of all respiratory infections including COVID-19,
  • what to do if someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 has been in a school or other educational setting, and
  • what advice to give to individuals who have travelled from specified countries or areas within the last 14 days, including school trips

With regards to travel information for specified countries/areas for pupils or students resident or boarding in the UK, we recommend following the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) country advice pages.

Dear Colleagues,

Working together, we become greater than the sum of our parts’

On behalf of the Steering Committee, I warmly welcome you to our new look improvement charity ASK Education.  We have taken all that we have learnt from working as a Teaching School alliance to shape our new model for working collaboratively to secure even better opportunities and outcomes for children and young people in Northamptonshire.  What is really exciting about this collaboration is that we have complete autonomy to work in a way that serves local interests across primary and secondary education.

We have organised our offer into three key areas: The Essentials for all our on-going training needs, an inquiry into practice programme that we are calling Engage: this provides a series of facilitated professional collaborative sessions focused on key improvement priorities.  Our Extras offer provides opportunities to work with strong partner organisations.  We will constantly seek new ways of working and new partners to work with so if you are doing something that is working please let us know.

We are looking forward to working with you into the future!
