Peer Review

School-to-school peer review is central to the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership’s model of sector-led school improvement.

All schools across Lincolnshire regardless of phase or status have associated themselves with groups of five to ten other schools, sometimes cross-phase, to form peer review clusters. Within these clusters, schools visit each other regularly throughout the academic year to assess and discuss their performance in core areas of teaching and leadership. The emphasis is on open and honest feedback with the ultimate goal of moving each and every school within Lincolnshire above and beyond national levels of excellence.

Peer review surveys are a critical tool in this process, and schools have agreed to share with each other the summaries and highlights of their peer review assessments. To this end, schools complete an online feedback tool to capture peer review outcomes for each individual school. The resulting data generates robust insights into real areas of strengths and room for improvement in the educational landscape across Lincolnshire and will help schools assist each other in improving performance and driving towards equity and excellence for all. Data will be shared mostly at an aggregate level except for a directory of excellence, which will name schools able and willing to assist other schools across the region in specific and targeted areas through best practice sharing, coaching, mentoring, or other initiatives.

The Peer Review Summary Outcomes Survey is now open! Please visit the survey to submit your school’s responses.
