Closes 25 Jun 2018

Opened 18 May 2018

Results expected 29 Jun 2018

Feedback expected 31 Aug 2018


A new School Effectiveness Strategy is currently being developed which will outline how the County Council will work with education providers over the next four years to ensure that all West Sussex children and young people really do get the best start in life. It will  replace the current Strategy for School Improvement 2016-2019.

The new School Effectiveness Strategy will underpin the aims in the West Sussex Plan 2017-2022  to meet the County Council's vision of “Improving educational outcomes in West Sussex by championing all our children and young people”.    

Comments are invited on a Draft School Effectiveness Strategy 2018-2022 which is attached below.

Why We Are Consulting

The County Council wants to listen to everyone that is involved in education provision across West Sussex. To create strong partnership working, the views of all stakeholders  are being sought in this consultation on a Draft Strategy.  Schools, educational settings, academy trusts, the Dioceses, other organisations, parent, carers, children and young people are invited to comment.

Your feedback on the Draft School Effectiveness Strategy will ensure that the County Council is taking the right steps to improve educational outcomes in West Sussex.

The questions relate to the sections of the Draft Strategy so it is advised that you read the document first and have a copy nearby to refer to.
