Vision for Education 

Education Improvement Strategy

Our ambition is to establish a reputation for Hartlepool as a town that provides a first class education for every learner.

The Education Improvement Strategy outlines how we will achieve our priorities in partnership with schools, academies and colleges in the town.


Schools Causing Concern Protocol

Hartlepool Local Authority has a duty to promote high standards of education in its schools, to monitor the performance of schools and to support and challenge them in their efforts to improve.

This document describes how Hartlepool Borough Council's Children's Services division promotes school improvement in schools causing concern in order to achieve our vision for Hartlepool.
