Our School Appraisal Meetings (SAMs) are an integral part of the membership package. We have developed the process in consultation with colleagues to ensure that we provide a robust and supportive structure to assist school improvement at all levels.

All alliance members receive an initial SAM visit during the Autumn term which is carried out by another headteacher from within the alliance. A clearly defined format is followed throughout the SAM process to ensure a consistency across the group. Headteachers welcome these visits as a positive peer to peer review system to help inform and monitor school development.
