Specialist schools, extended schools, a resource guide for synergy
The resource is a microsite accessed from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) website. The resource is intended to assist secondary schools in planning, implementing and evaluating actions to increase their effectiveness as extended schools, particularly in relation to their specialism. These actions should focus on developing more â€˜outward lookingâ€™ approaches as a means of bringing about change within and beyond the school.
