The School Improvement Partner (SIP) manager’s role in leading and managing the SIP programme is central to its effectiveness. The quality and impact of SIP reports are highly dependent upon a clear understanding of the SIP role by all stakeholders, and upon the alignment of the SIP programme to the LA support and intervention functions for school improvement.
The evidence collected from across LAs confirms that good practice in the production and quality assurance of SIP reports is embedded within effective systems and procedures for the management of the whole SIP programme, within an effective school improvement strategy, and where the SIP manager is committed to the programme within the spirit and intent of the New Relationship with Schools.
The purpose of providing guidance on the writing and quality assurance of the School Improvement Partner (SIP) reports is to ensure that the SIP programme has the maximum impact on schools, contributing to their effectiveness and raising the achievement of all learners. This is generic guidance which applies to secondary, primary and special school SIPs. It is intended to provide clarity about the quality standards expected in SIP reports and the processes which need to be put in place by SIP Managers and National Strategies senior phase managers.
