NPW Services for Schools 2019/20

FOREWORD

Since my appointment as the Chief Executive of NPW in July 2014, I am proud that NPW has continued to work as a trusted and ethical partner for schools. The last few years have seen an unprecedented level of change both locally and nationally. There has been a significant shift to academisation, schools have experienced real term funding reductions, the national funding formula is being rolled out, there are difficulties in teacher recruitment and retention, changing Ofsted frameworks and the local authority is looking to build a new relationship with schools - to name a few. At NPW we recognise these challenges and upcoming changes, which have informed our direction of travel. Our operating model has changed, to focus on high-end value added services by investing in our people to deliver the right level of expertise and meet industry standards. We are building a strong team of familiar faces and fresh talent, to drive up our efficiency and effectiveness. We are very fortunate to be collaborating with inspiring organisations that are doing some innovative work. A number of our schools are already benefiting from the impact of this work. We will continue to share this with all of our members and the wider community. We are committed to working with you to make a positive impact on the lives of children.

Establishing a Partnership We work with each school to assess the scope for partnership, support initial due diligence and provide advice & guidance on the solutions available.

We then develop a memorandum of understanding to establish a formal agreement which meets the needs of the parties. Academy Conversion The planning and preparation required for converting to an academy is

time-consuming. Schools need to consider how stakeholders should be consulted, and the impact from building and land transfers to TUPE requirements.

We project manage your conversion to an academy, the process of forming a MAT or joining an established MAT, ensuring the process is as smooth as possible. Governance Review A successful school requires good governance, to not only comply with regulations, but to achieve its objectives and drive improvement.

We assess the effectiveness of the governance arrangements by attending

governing board meetings, reviewing key documents, interviewing key individuals and recommending improvements.

6


Peer Governance Review We carry out a governance review for each partnership, comparing and contrasting what works well, and the good practice that could be shared. Integrated Curriculum & Financial Planning We carry out an independent evaluation of all schools in the partnership and provide

a detailed breakdown of the financial efficiency in delivering the curriculum, that can be embedded into business processes.

This exercise can help your partnership and MAT to secure access to additional DfE funding and benchmark your school against similar organisations across the country. Stress (management) Risk Assessment When partnerships are formed, new roles with greater responsibilities are created. Schools

and partnerships have a responsibility to help staff manage any stress involved in their new role.

We work with schools to reduce stress absence, support vulnerable members of staff and staff with high levels of responsibility or prominent roles within an organisation. Health & Safety Network Meetings

If you’re interested in any of our Partnership Products, please contact sales@npw.uk.com or call 0208 249 6900

We will hold quarterly meetings to provide advice and guidance on policy and procedure updates, legislation changes, compliance issues and incident management.

A NUMBER OF NEW PRODUCTS ARE COMING TO MARKET. THESE ARE CREATED AND DEFINED IN CONJUNCTION WITH SCHOOLS. BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF SOME OF THE PRODUCTS WE ARE CURRENTLY PILOTING.

Marketing and Branding Consultancy Schools may not be aware of how they or their staff are represented online.

Traditionally the identity of schools was based on strong values, community and Ofsted reports.

In the digital age of social media, your identity is driven by online opinion, search

results and digital presence. We’re looking to find a solution, so schools can better manage these factors with the use of strategic marketing and branding. Leadership and Management Development With quality recruitment becoming tougher than ever, it is increasingly important to have a high staff retention rate. This requires clear career progression routes with

quality training and development programmes.

We are exploring ways in which we can work with schools to identify and develop leadership and managerial potential, and support staff in gaining the right level of knowledge, skills and ability to lead and manage teams, cultural change and organisational development.

Culture Change & Organisational Development Understanding the prevailing culture, why it exists and what needs to change, often requires an independent and objective viewpoint. We’re exploring with partners how best to achieve sustainable change and organisational development.

28


Health & Safety Management System Managing and understanding all health and safety

requirements can be an arduous task. We are seeking a

solution to have one place to record and report on process, ensuring greater compliance and reducing risks. Senior Staff Recruitment Recruitment and retention has become more difficult. In particular, teachers do not

necessarily stay in the profession for the duration of their careers. This puts pressure on

schools when appointing to senior posts due to the reduction in the quantity and quality of applications.

Together with our partners in schools, we are working to find effective solutions for recruitment, retention and succession planning.

Risk Management

helping us develop

Whilst schools are aware of the risks they may face, often they are managed in a

any of these ideas or

fragmented way, and in many cases the lower priority risks are not dealt with, stirring up problems for the future.

NPW is currently using an internal system to collectively manage, categorise and assess

risks. We are able to transfer our success in reducing the impact of our risks to our clients.

C LO S E

As the newest member of NPW, it has been a real pleasure to find out and be a part of a team that is committed to making a difference to our community of schools. I have been listening to head teachers and speaking to a range of stakeholders. I acknowledge the financial challenges schools face, accept the geographical location of your school will play a big part in the opportunities available to you and may also present some unique challenges, which cannot be resolved solely by any one school. NPW has a proud tradition of supporting schools and has played a key role in building a strong education hub in Newham. We now look forward to continuing this work in other boroughs. Times have changed and so must NPW. I am delighted that we have already made progress with a range of new products and are working hard to ensure NPW’s operating model is fit for purpose for the future.
