Trust Partner - Best Practice Network

Best Practice Network is a highly successful, values-driven provider of education services, working with you to inspire children and their teachers to achieve excellence.

We are inviting Academies, small Trusts, schools considering conversion and maintained schools to consider Best Practice Network as your Trust Partner to:

  • Promote excellence across all aspects of education including (where required):
  • Strengthen governing bodies to meet Ofsted’s expectations; provide governance reviews and development workshops;
  • Support Headteacher and senior appointments and performance management processes.
  • Provide a Self-Evaluation Toolkit, Supported Peer Review and Exceptional School’s award.
  • Access to National College qualifications - NPQH, NPQSL, NPQML;
  • Negotiate a School Leadership Adviser to help the school continue to improve;
  • Benchmark services (HR, Payroll, Catering, Grounds and property) to secure best value;
  • Build relationships with other schools nationally and internationally.

Your school will benefit through a core service and tailored provision that best suits your needs. You will retain your independence whilst benefiting from the collective expertise of BPN and all member schools. The Partnership will have a small board – participating schools nominate members. A Raising Achievement Panel will develop improvement strategies using NLEs & SLEs to share success. We hope that each participating school will share our common values:

  • We strive for excellence, through continuous improvements in all our work.
  • We lead by example - acting in a way that exemplifies what we expect of each other and for our partners.
  • We work together - bringing out the best in each other and creating strong and successful working relationships.
  • We respect people for who they are and for their knowledge, skills and experience as individuals and team members.
  • We are open and honest in our communication - sharing information, insight and advice, frequently and constructively and managing tough situations with courage and candour.
  • We act with integrity - constantly striving to uphold the highest professional standards.
  • We aim to innovate not replicate, to address tomorrow's challenges today.

For schools and academies wishing to join the Partnership the subscription is differentiated by the size and needs of the school.
