£253,000 funding to support Lincolnshire schools

31 January 2018

The Lincolnshire Teaching Schools Together partnership (LTT) has been awarded £253,000 to boost primary school-to-school support for pupils aged 9-11.

The funding will be used to focus on support for maths under the Lincolnshire Attainment Maths Project (LAMP), so that pupils make the best possible progress through their primary years.

Boston Staniland Academy, Witham St Hughs Academy, Bourne Westfield Academy, Lincoln Mount Street Academy and Sandon School & Ambergate Sports College in Grantham are driving the collaboration and support with other schools as part of this Teaching Schools Together project.

Aimed specifically at the eastern side of the county, schools are being invited to take part.

Councillor Mrs Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services, said: “This welcome funding boost will help ensure support is targeted at the schools that need it most in Lincolnshire. It makes sense that we use the talent, skills and experience of our teaching schools and those that are leading the way in terms of performance to drive improvements in other, more vulnerable schools.”

Adrian Reed, Chief Executive of Boston Witham Academies Federation and Connect, added: “We are delighted to have secured a significant investment in school improvement which goes directly into the classroom to improve outcomes for children. This initiative will see some of our leading teaching schools share best practice, allow us to draw from evidence based-research and provide professional development for teachers in the teaching of maths.”

The support will come from established local leaders of education and specialist leaders of education, working directly with invited schools. This will ensure that the impact of the programme will have a lasting effect, sustaining the standards expected in the classroom.

The sector-led model in Lincolnshire means schools are leading school improvement, working in partnership with each other and other educational establishments.
