Stronger Schools is unique due to:

  • its ability to combine consistent national guidance with local information that enables educators to make better-informed decisions.

  • the technology that sits behind it.

How up-to-date is the content and how will I know when something has been added or updated?

Stronger Schools content is continually being updated to reflect changing local and national guidance. Local content advisors alert the Stronger Schools development team when information changes. To keep up-to-date, school staff and local service providers subscribe to regular email updates or they can check the Latest Updates page for rolling summaries of changes as they occur.
