Swindon Challenge Board

Swindon Challenge Board is a partnership arrangement which takes collective responsibility for driving improvement for pupils in Swindon schools and colleges.

It is committed to ensuring all children and young people in Swindon have the chance to achieve their full potential.  It is ambitious of every child and young person and seeks to provide the appropriate support and challenge within a school-led system of school improvement.

Under an independent chair, the Swindon Challenge Board meets four times a year.

• Spring Term 4: Consider and agree priorities for Secondary schools in light of further data analysis.  Review progress of target schools and determine new action needed.
• Summer Term 6:  Early analysis of Primary results and confirm priorities for support the following year.
