North Lincolnshire Standards and Effectiveness Service

The Standards and Effectiveness Service plays a key role in improving the quality of education and outcomes for all children and young people in education. Equality of opportunity and excellence in achievement become the norm for all.

We work with all early years settings, schools, academies and colleges in North Lincolnshire. This includes childminders, pre-schools, nurseries, infant schools, junior schools, primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, pupil referral units and sixth form colleges. We also work closely with other services across the council and teacher training providers.

We offer a wide range of additional support services for schools. Our skills and experience ensure schools get real value for money and support to achieve positive outcomes for pupils.

If you need support or advice please contact us, even during school holidays.
