As a legacy of our Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF) project and to support all schools, including those eligible for the Bradford Opportunity Area grants to fund literacy support, we’ve prepared a prospectus of evidence-based support from external
providers that schools will find useful in considering their needs. Schools wishing to access the programmes and support contained within the prospectus can benefit from a collaborative approach to ‘bulk buying’ this via Exceed Teaching Schools. We’ve arranged
for the programmes to be delivered locally, if sufficient numbers of schools express an interest, reducing the overall cost to schools, reducing travel and enabling the grant to go further.
Schools that aren’t in receipt of the grant can also express an interest in the support, utilising their Pupil Premium Grant or their school budget to purchase the support.
We envisage further updates to the prospectus in the coming weeks. The prospectus can be downloaded from the following webpage but please check back regularly for new updates.

Are you coming to our Ofsted event with Sean Harford? If so, we'll have provider stands so you can discuss these programmes with the providers.
