The Key Leaders

The Key Leaders is the only support service trusted by over half of all schools in England as they navigate each and every challenge thrown their way - even the ones they don’t see coming. Turn to us for guidance you can trust with every decision you’ll make. So you know you’ll get it right, every time.

The Key Safeguarding

The Key Safeguarding is the only service that supports your DSL and every single member of staff to get safeguarding right, every time. With a unique blend of DSL leadership resources, eLearning for all staff, parent resources, plus the most comprehensive INSET pack on the market, you’ll keep safeguarding at the front of everyone’s mind all year round.

The Key CPD

The Key CPD brings together in-depth essential skills training and innovations from practicing teachers and leaders to empower all staff to own school improvement. Delve into deep dive training modules across a wide range of topics including SEND, differentiation and developing a growth mindset one week. The next, watch talks from practicing school leaders and teachers sharing their proven methods that strengthen curriculums and transform classroom standards.

You’ll know that we’ve been working together with The Key for many years to be able to offer great support to all our schools.

At Ealing Council, we’ve carefully reviewed how we invest our resources most effectively to best support our schools. As a result of this review, we’ll continue to work closely with The Key but change how we process its memberships. Going forward, instead of buying and renewing your memberships of The Key through the Ealing Services for Schools process, The Key will manage this directly with you. We’re pleased to let you know that we have negotiated with The Key to continue to offer great rates for Ealing schools.

What are the next steps?

Our colleagues from The Key will reach out to schools that have renewals coming up in April 2023. If you have any questions about The Key’s offer or would like to discuss your membership, please contact to Jamie MacFarlane at

No change to how you get governance support.

Although The Key and GovernorHub are part of the same organisation, there will be no changes to how you purchase or renew your governance support. Membership of GovernorHub will still be available to purchase through the Ealing Services to Schools process - see GovernorHub / GovernorHub knowledge.

We’d like to thank The Key for their close collaboration and support over the years.
