Ofsted and self-evaluation
We can help you keep up to date with the latest Ofsted requirements and support you with the self-evaluation of your school or setting.
The Great School Framework
The Great School Framework is designed to inspire those in schools and working with schools.
Safeguarding is the most crucial aspect of the work of any school. We can offer an external eye on your culture, processes and procedures so you can be sure your pupils are safe.
Hertfordshire schools can access the Safeguarding Portal which is a ‘one stop shop’ providing schools with the most up to date guidance, policies and resources in relation to safeguarding. This information is intended to empower schools to develop their culture of safeguarding.
This portal is available to all Hertfordshire schools irrespective of their designation.
To access the Safeguarding portal you need to be logged in to your school account.
HR and recruitment
Recruiting and selecting staff can take up a lot of your time. We have a dedicated team of recruitment experts available to provide recruitment and selection solutions for your school.
The Teach in Herts recruitment service (which includes the Teach in Herts website) can help you recruit the right people for your school.
Our HR services team can provide specialist advisory services on a range of HR issues such as change management, probation, disciplinary and capability issues, absence management and attendance.
Hertfordshire schools and academies who purchase our HR services have access to the HR Services portal for maintained schools and the Academies HR portal which provide a wealth of materials including streamlined policies (consulted upon with recognised trade unions which means that schools and academies don’t have to) template letters, basic and specialist practice notes and a news bulletin feature where you will find regular education/employment news.
Whether a school or an academy we can provide key business support services from school business management, financial systems and procedures support, to that crucial IT support and internet connectivity.
We also offer a Business Improvement Partner service designed to support headteachers with the strategic skills required to successfully run the business elements of a school and to provide assurance that key business areas are robust, compliant and providing relevant information for effective management.
Training and development
We offer an extensive training programme to support school and academy staff at all stages of their careers. We offer online learning, webinars and face to face support. One day training courses and events take place at a range of venues and we also deliver in-school training which can involve all staff within a school, either for a full-day, half-day or twilight.
