Bexley Education Improvement Partnership (BEIP)

 

      The BEIP schools educate over 8,100 pupils and students – a sixth of all the pupils and students in the London Borough of Bexley – working in 9 primary and 3 secondary schools. Pupils and students mostly live in the north of the Borough; a community rich in diversity of culture and an exciting, progressive place to be.  However, in some important respects, they face greater challenges than their peers elsewhere in the Borough:

  • the proportion of these pupils and students known to be eligible for free school meals or Pupil Premium funding is more than twice that in the Borough’s other schools
  • the proportion who have statements of Special  Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) or are supported at School Action Plus is twice that of the Borough’s other schools.
  • English is not the first language of nearly a quarter of these pupils and students; in the Borough’s other schools it is only a tenth.

 

This is why the schools formed a partnership thirteen years ago to work together to increase the opportunities for these children to succeed in life.  This included:

  • employing and training specialist Learning Mentors to encourage those children facing particular difficulties in learning
  • setting up learning support centres to give extra support where needed
  • providing specialist teaching and support programmes for the More Able or Talented
  • running staff development programmes helping our teachers to tailor their teaching and learning skills more specifically for our children.
