Effective collaboration to tailor systems and processes to the needs of Rhondda Cynon Taf
Senior leaders in Rhondda Cynon Taf communicate explicitly its priorities for school improvement, as set out in its current education strategic plan. Senior leaders and officers work proactively with the regional consortium to tailor systems and processes to the needs of the local authority. For instance, they provide detailed feedback on the suitability of reporting processes for sharing information about the support and challenge the regional service provides to each school and PRU. As a result, there are now specific requirements for improvement partners to report on the effectiveness of a school’s or PRU’s self-evaluation and improvement planning processes, as well as the quality of teaching and leadership.
