One of the main areas of focus of the Association's work is to support school improvement and promote further collaboration between schools.
With over 90% of schools in Kent received good or outstanding results in 2017, the county’s improvement in inspection outcomes and achievement is underpinned by leaders’ drive and commitment to collaborative working and the sharing of best practice through the Kent Association of Headteachers.
506 schools across Kent took part in collaborative projects across Kent in 2015/16. 329 of these benefited from KAH grants to support specific projects, and many more from the subsidising of leadership development initiatives related to the new Leadership Strategy.
A key requirement of any KAH funding is that school collaborations provide evidence of results achieved and the Association has published an impact report to summarise the impact of funding over the last two years.
KAH impact evidence shows that from September 2014 to March 2016, 66 Primary schools had improved their Ofsted outcomes, with 57 of the 66 schools having received KAH funding for collaborative projects. More recently, in the period from 1 April and 31 October 2016, Ofsted reports were published showing improved grades for 25 more Kent Primary schools. 24 of these 25 had also benefited from KAH funding.
