Lincolnshire Teaching Schools Together

Strategic School Improvement Fund 

The Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF) is a government grant designed to build a “school-led system” by providing additional funding to schools that need to improve performance and pupil attainment.  The fund is used to support medium- to long-term sustainable activities across groups of schools. 

LTT are leading the the Lincolnshire approach to the SSIF, and have appointed three SSIF co-ordinators to work in partnership with the Local Authority, MATs the Kyra Research School and other partners to identify and co-ordinate the identification of need and capacity.

Lincolnshire Teaching Schools Together have been successful in three SSIF applications and are delighted to be working with over 90 schools. 


The Lincolnshire English Achievement Project (LEAP) 

This project aims to reduce the attainment gap for disadvantaged children and vulnerable groups at Early Years, KS1 & KS2 by improving literacy and communication skills.

We will provide identified schools with the tools and knowledge to review and refine their approach to closing the gap in literacy, alongside an evidence-based package of interventions and programmes aimed at supporting disadvantaged children and vulnerable groups.

The Lincolnshire Educational Needs Support Project (LENS)

This project will help schools across Lincolnshire to raise standards for pupils with SEND through a bespoke package of support and training using a quality assured collaborative approach.

Schools will work in triads with the support and guidance of a specialist Partner.  Alongside a cycle of audits supporting a ‘plan do review’ approach, LENS schools will participate in a core set of development activities, and be invited to learn through a set of option Pathways for additional targeted CPD according to school development needs. 

LENS will launch in October 2018 and run to the end of the Spring term in 2020.
