Providing support and challenge to special school leaders to enable great outcomes for all pupils

    Engaging the services of a special school/ESC Hertfordshire Improvement Partner (HIP) offers a number of advantages and provides:

    • a flexible, bespoke programme, which can be as extensive or as focused as required
    • support and challenge for leadership across the school
    • a HIP who is up to date regarding inspection and accountability frameworks, rigorously quality assured and accountable for the quality of their work
    • a HIP who can carefully coordinate deployment of a “team around the school”, drawing on the range of HfL expert professionals and other experienced school leaders.

    There are four packages of special school/ESC HIP support available:

    • Standard HIP package is a 1.5 day package of support, which typically includes an autumn term (standards) visit and a headteacher performance appraisal in the autumn term.
    • Bronze HIP package is a 2.5 day package of support, which typically includes an autumn term (standards) visit and a headteacher performance appraisal in the autumn term, and an additional whole day visit (no report) or a half day visit (plus report) focused on a specific area.
    • Silver HIP package is a 3.5 day package of support, which typically includes an autumn term (standards) visit and a headteacher performance appraisal in the autumn term, and an additional two days of HIP support focused on specific areas.
    • Gold HIP package is a 4.5 day package of support, which typically includes an autumn term (standards) visit and a headteacher performance appraisal in the autumn term, and an additional three days of HIP support focused on specific areas.

    The high quality HIP service that HfL has provided us with has secured immensely valuable challenge and support on our journey to continuous school improvement. It has been important for us that our HIP has expert knowledge of the quality of SEN provision, enabling him to provide us with rigorous yet constructive feedback. We value the HIP service that is tailored to meet our federation's bespoke development needs.
