  • Hilary Ann Ferries

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The thesis addresses the role of the primary School Improvement Partner (SIP) within the field of school improvement. In early 2004 the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) published a vision for a new relationship between central government and schools. One element of this vision was a new role: that of the School Improvement Partner. Following the General Election in 2010 the White Paper, ‘The Importance of Teaching’, ended the SIP role.
