Critical friend service

Bromley Education is proud to offer a ‘critical friend’ service to schools and colleges in England.

This service is always tailored to meet the unique needs of the institution but commonly includes the following:

  • Running an inspection base-room
  • Review and annotation of existing documentation with suggestions for improvement
  • Revision of existing documentation
  • Production of original documents including policies and procedures, strategies, action plans, self-evaluation reports, data analyses, synopses of external evidence, graphics, etc.
  • Production of training materials
  • Delivery of training
  • Meetings with senior leaders, middle leaders and teachers
  • Mentoring / coaching of staff
  • Mock interviews and inspection meetings with staff
  • Round the clock help and advice via telephone and/or email
  • Regular dispatches of relevant research materials and news articles
  • The development and implementation of new systems and structures, including for the purposes of quality assurance and performance management

The level of support – and indeed the balance between support and challenge, constructive criticism and friendship – is always determined by the institution. It can be anything from a single telephone call to bounce ideas around and seek a fresh pair of eyes, or a day on-site working with key staff, to weeks, months or years of continued assistance both on- and off-site.
