Abstract:

This contract will deliver a programme of Inclusion Leadership training and support for school leaders of mainstream primary and secondary schools in Kent. The aim will be to facilitate opportunities for collaborative working between schools in order to review and strengthen their approaches to the inclusion of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). The long-term aims of the service will be to improve a range of outcomes for children and young people with SEND in participating mainstream schools, through providing targeted development opportunities for school leaders that will in turn influence the culture and practices of schools. These long-term aims are supported by the following short-term outcomes for the service:

• School leaders are able to critically review and improve inclusive practice within their own settings through effective peer-review.

• School leaders have improved knowledge, skills and confidence in implementing inclusive practices within their setting through participating in Inclusion Leadership Development Programmes.

• Inclusion Leaders of Education are appropriately trained and effectively deployed to provide expert facilitation of Inclusion Peer Review Clusters and disseminate best practice across settings.

In order to achieve these outcomes, the service model will bring together three interconnected strands of activity which will together enable a school-to-school support network, focussed on inclusion:

• A model for Inclusion Peer Review Clusters, each comprising of up to 6 school leaders, to reach a minimum target of supporting 360 schools during the contract lifetime to undertake an Inclusion Peer Review and implement a subsequent action plan.

• Design and delivery of Inclusion Leadership Development Programmes for school leaders at two levels:

Middle/ Senior leaders and Headteachers / Executive Headteachers (with the target of at least 1 Headteacher /

Executive Headteacher from every school / Trust and 1 senior leader from every school to have completed a Development Programme by the end of the contract).

• Training and deployment of local Inclusion Leaders of Education (ILEs) to facilitate the Clusters and support peer review activity.

The procurement process was conducted in accordance with the Light Touch Regime as it involved the purchase of educational and training services which are included in Schedule 3 of The Public Contracts Regulations 2015. This was therefore a bespoke procurement process, that was tailored to meet the specific requirements of the Inclusion Leadership Service.
