School Improvement

DTSA is continuing to develop a wide range of in-school support that can be delivered in flexible and bespoke ways such as inputs to staff meetings, INSET days, in-school meetings, shared events with other schools (to keep costs down) or coaching for individual members of staff.


Colleagues are serving practitioners from good and outstanding schools in a range of contexts in both the city and the county. They face similar daily challenges to yours and all have a clear focus of ensuring the children get the very best opportunities to succeed in learning, whatever their starting point.

Network Meetings are a chance for collaboration with your peers so you can share information and develop as a leader. Expert consultants will help you identify priority issues in teaching and learning and professional development for your teams. You will be able to develop solutions, drawing on the expertise within the group. This strengthening of informal school-to-school support will create an effective network of information, advice and guidance.

Pupil Premium

An opportunity to understand how Pupil Premium funding can be spent and the need to be fully aware of its impact on the performance of this group of pupils in the school. The need to evaluate spending and be well prepared for conversations with Ofsted.
