Educational Psychology Consultation Service
Using Psychology to Make a Difference
The Shared Legal Services provide legal advice to internal departments within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council. We are able to provide legal advice to maintained schools and academies across the Bi-borough.
We have a number of dedicated legal teams within our services to assist you. Our teams of knowledgeable and experienced Local Authority Solicitors can assist you with enquiries such as contracts and procurement enquiries, property, some education enquiries (to include establishing and/or closing schools, exclusion appeals, governance queries), as well as employment advice. We also provide litigation advice if issues arise with parental disputes in schools.
In addition, we have a very experienced team of legal staff who deal with Children and Adult Social Care related legal issues.
Business Intelligence Team for Education
The Business Intelligence Team provides a high quality and cost-effective research and statistics service to schools in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster.
The team is made up of experienced analysts with high expertise and in-depth knowledge of both boroughs. The team manages the analysis and benchmarking of all types of school data, including attainment, attendance, exclusions and a wide range of pupil characteristics information. The team is also experienced in providing comprehensive local demographic profiling.
The team is skilled in both qualitative and quantitative research methods and not only has extensive experience of data analysis and interpretation but is also able to provide a range of services to your own specifications. This can include pupil tracking, evaluating improvement initiatives and designing questionnaires. The team provides training in the effective understanding and use of data generated within the organisation and externally by the DfE, Ofsted and FFT. The last year has seen the team incorporate new visualisation software and techniques into their work enabling the delivery of a more dynamic and sophisticated service with the potential to take our work into a level of depth and presentation that was not possible previously.
The team also provides spatial analysis and can generate maps to your own individual needs using the latest GIS mapping software or dynamic online maps within Power BI. The School Profile is included in the School Improvement SLA. For schools that have not bought into the School Improvement SLA, they can purchase their Annual School Profile separately. As ever, we are working hard to innovate our service and build on our working relationships across both boroughs. We welcome feedback on our services and look forward to working with you over the coming year.
