School to School Support - Funding Round 4
For Round 4 of the School to School support programme the region was asked to play a much greater role in planning and agreeing the support that would take place.
Teaching Schools and NLEs worked together in mini-regions to agree what bids would be submitted and how support would be provided on a local level. This allowed for the sharing of local intelligence so that support could be targeted to where it was more needed and could be most effective.
Once the bids were submitted a representative group from across the region met to provide local intelligence on all the bids that had been submitted and to recommend a level of priority (low, medium or high).
