We continue to monitor developments within the school effectiveness service and in particular any proposals to establish a new or different type of service provision for schools (eg learning partnership). 

Discussions with colleagues may lead to proposals about the HR service which will be shared with schools before any final decision about the HR service is made. 

We look to ensure that any proposal involving the schools HR consultancy team maintains or enhances the quality of service that schools expect and receive.
