Our Progress

Review and Refresh

In the Autumn term 2019, we produced our first annual review which took stock of progress made to date with a particular focus on evaluating the strategy’s ability to demonstrate its impact. The review identified many causes for celebration in the strategy’s key priority areas with evidence of successful collaboration with partners, however, it was acknowledged that there was a need for a more complete picture of what success will look like and a further commitment to the ‘shared partnership’ between WCC and its partners.

Following on from this review, the delivery plan was refreshed to redefine our criteria for success and enhance our ability to track and demonstrate progress across each priority. This was taken a stage further in 2020 with the development of a dashboard which, found in the ‘Tracking Progress’ section below, highlights key trends for education in Warwickshire.

In 2020, we also refreshed the strategy following consultation with our colleagues and partners. Feedback indicated that broadly the strategy highlights the priority aspects of education and therefore any refresh should only involve minor modifications.

Amendments were made to reaffirm our commitment to building much needed resilience in the area of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) with a reconfiguration of the previous ‘WE2 An Empowering Curriculum’ priority and the establishment of the SEND change programme.

Messaging on our commitment to supporting a broad, empowering and creative curriculum, education safeguarding and the promotion of an inclusive education were also strengthened.

We will continue to review the strategy on an annual basis. For details on how you can contribute to developing the strategy and ensure it’s achieving the best for learners in Warwickshire, please visit the next page.

Tracking Progress

The delivery plan and performance monitoring dashboard outline the key business measures that are used to measure the impact of the strategy across its four priority areas. These documents are reviewed and updated with the latest results throughout the lifecycle of the strategy and are available in the documents and downloads section on this page.

Alongside these measures, we will undertake an annual programme of activities as we work towards our objectives and will review the strategy annually during the Autumn term each year:
