Juliet, Tim & The BEP Team

Welcome

Tim Boyes

Our mission is to secure a deeply good academic, social and civic education for every child and young person living in Birmingham. The BEP Mission BEP is committed to all schools being included and recognises that local, city and national connectivity is a key to success for schools at every stage of their development. BEP believes it takes a whole city to raise a child. If schools do well, then children do well and if children do well, our city will flourish.

We are delighted to launch our new offer to schools.

Birmingham Education Partnership (BEP) was founded in 2013 by Headteachers for the benefit of every child in Birmingham, in order to bring cohesive partnership working to its’ potentially disparate entire school community, for all children and young people. We have excellent relationships with maintained schools, academies, academy groups and independent schools. We work with all phases and providers of education and we aim to replicate our success with the corporate and health care sectors. Ten years on, we are enriching our provision by working with neighbouring authorities and beyond.

BEP’s Core Values • Integrity

Juliet Silverton

• Inclusivity • Relational

We are reaching further, promoting the brilliance of Birmingham beyond our boundaries, and scanning the horizon for nuggets and gems of excellence and innovation to return to our founder city. This September marks the threshold of a new beginning for BEP, as we are now empowered to deal directly with schools. As our Schools offer moves from strength to strength, we can now respond with more agility and neutrality to your needs, prioritising: • High quality • Value for money • Relevance

BIRMINGHAM ARTS SCHOOL

Birmingham Arts School (BAS) is a space to build crea- tive minds. By connecting schools to the Arts we allow chil- dren and young people to think, to imagine, to question and to enable everyone across the City to think about the world openly and explore it with a different mindset. BAS recognises that children and young people face inequalities across the City. We strive to connect them with first class Arts opportunities that not only enhance their learning and wellbeing but develop skills to support them in the furture.

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT SERVICES

BEP are specialists in School Improvement. Since our creation in 2013 by Headteachers, we have a proven track record in impact and sustainability, evidenced from the power of individual testimony to the external measure of the whole school system which has improved in its’ provision of good or outstanding schools from 77% in 2015 to almost 90% as of March 2024. The 6% gap to National as all but disappeared. Alongside this, 75% of our Keys to Success (KTS) schools that have been inspected in the last 3 months have achieved a good or better grade. Our results speak for themselves.

Each of our specialist led subject networks will equip Curriculum Leaders with leadership skills as well as substantive and disciplinary knowledge. Buy 3 Specialist Led Networks and get our Languages Network for Free.

Curriculum lies at the heart of education: it determines what children will know and what they will be able to go on to do.

FIVE FOUNDATIONS TO EFFECTIVE ATTENDANCE PRACTICE FRAMEWORK TRAINING This framework ensures there is a whole-school approach to improving attendance built upon connectedness and belonging.

Audience: Strategic & Operational Leads for Attendance | Prim, Sec, Spec, MATs

Email enquiries to: productsandservices@bep.education

Each year the team identifies improvement areas that reflect the needs of the city through using key data, horizon scanning, and most importantly through listening to leaders.

As an Attendance Lead across our multi-academy, the training has been really beneficial in supporting our Attendance Leads to think about attendance from the point of view of the child, as well as other key stakeholders. It provoked lots of meaningful discussions and sparked lots of questions that will have a positive impact on their approaches to attendance within their schools. FIVE FOUNDATIONS TO EFFECTIVE ATTENDANCE PRACTICE FRAMEWORK TRAINING

ATTENDANCE LEADS: WHAT HAPPENS NEXT... (TRAINING) Providing Attendance Leads with tools and skills to effectively audit and implement attendance action plans effectively.

Flexible, Relevant and Responsive, in all Tiers

Whilst it is important to have a plan, it is equally important to be agile and adaptable. So, we will: • Listen to leaders. • Closely monitor the trends that arise from external data. • Keep abreast of new initiatives to ensure that we are consistently meeting leaders’ needs and expectations and amend our offer accordingly.

FOUNDATION SENIOR MENTAL HEALTH LEAD (SMHL) TRAINING This two-day course will give SMHLs a firm grounding in the theory and practice of leading and establishing a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing. The Department for Education (DfE) is offering a grant of £1,200 for eligible state-funded schools and colleges in England to train a SMHL to develop and implement a whole school or college approach to mental health and wellbeing. Audience: Senior Mental Health Leads | All Phases Dates: 19 Nov & 4th Dec 2024; 4th Feb & 5th Mar 2025 or 14th May & 11th June 2025. Venue: In-person

£175.00 per person.

• Foundation Senior Mental Health Lead Training (with optional coaching) • LITE Senior Mental Health Lead Training • Access and attendance at Network meetings • Mental Health & Wellbeing Audit • Mental Health Fundamentals training sessions • Emotional Literacy Package • Link Governor for Wellbeing Training • Headroom: Support for Headteachers series

£800.00 per person. Click the link to register.

LITE SENIOR MENTAL HEALTH LEAD TRAINING This training is not a substitute for the more in-depth Senior Mental Health Leads training. Delivered by the same team that lead our DfE authorised Senior Mental Health Lead training, this session is ideal for those who are relatively new to supporting mental health provision in your setting or part of the wider Mental Health team in school. Alternatively where trained staff have moved on, this is an ideal CPD for staff new to role, where your school is not eligible for, or has already had a grant from the DfE. Audience: Senior Mental Health Leads | All Phases Date: 23rd Oct 2024 or 26th Mar 2025 Venue: In-person

We have additonal offers that enhance these core elements and your school practice, details of which can be found later in this brochure. We know that sometimes schools require a bespoke piece of work to meet their needs. We pride ourselves on being agile and responsive, so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

I found this to be an enjoyable and engaging course. The trainers were so friendly, knowledgable and informative. The opportunity for discussion and collaboration and sharing of ideas with colleagues was so valuable. I left with so many practical take-aways. I feel really supported and confident going back into school to do my role. FOUNDATION SENIOR MENTAL HEALTH LEAD TRAINING
