Services, Support and Service Level Agreements

Our model of delivery | How we work 
Our specialist school effectiveness support, consultancy and training is delivered via two frameworks: the first designed to fulfil our statutory Diocesan Education Team duties to church schools, academies and trusts carried out on behalf of the Guildford Diocesan Board of Education (GDBE).

The second, a wider remit for education consultancy and continuing development with our team of Diocesan associates and partners to support all schools, academies and trusts. This forms part of our Guildford Diocesan Services Limited (GDSL) traded services offer each year through membership to our annual education service level agreements and access to our training programme. 

Our Ethos | Christian Distinctiveness
Our GDBE Education Team and RE consultants are specialists with deep sector experience in all aspects of Christian Distinctiveness, SIAMS Support and RE for school, academy and trust provision with the Diocese, regionally and nationally.

Our Approach | Alongside you
We focus on relationship building, partnership and pastoral care to support the development of the Christian ethos and character for each church school, academy and trust within the Diocese of Guildford. Central to our offer is the support for leadership.
