Our vision is to become our schools’ most trusted partner, working with you to deliver the best outcomes for all our young people.

Igniting talent.

Supporting achievement

We are a not-for-profit social enterprise that provides school improvement and related services to schools and other education providers across London and beyond.

Our services span school improvement and curriculum support, attendance, inclusion and SEND, careers and work experience, governor services, NQT support, ICT, and continuing professional development.

How we can help your school

What makes us unique?

We are:

  • School-owned and school-led: we are owned by 56 local schools, who drive our organisation – from how we are run to the services we provide.
  • Purpose before profit: we are a not-for-profit organisation where pupil outcomes, not profit, are our bottom line.
  • Locally grounded: we know and understand our local community, our schools, our people, our history, our shared aspirations

Grant Krog, Headteacher, The Leys Primary

"Thank you very much for your exceptionally productive visits. Your comments, expertise and suggestions for next steps are very valuable. I am pleased that you were able to come into school – it is a pleasure to work with you. My staff have been very complimentary, and they value your insight and coaching."

Grant Krog, Headteacher, The Leys Primary

Jade Beech, SENCo, St Margaret’s Primary School

"It has been really beneficial receiving support on the SEN recovery plan. For all SENCos, this was new after the pandemic. Your support allowed us to return to school successfully, so it was really useful. You have also connected me with several people who have guided me and supported the writing of various policies for the website, ensuring they are the best they can be."

Jade Beech, SENCo, St Margaret’s Primary School

Dawn Jones, George Carey Church of England Primary School, SENCo

"The impact of CPD has been excellent for me and the inclusion team. It has also rippled through the teaching and support staff across the school. My positive experience is something I am personally very grateful for. All the training, discussions and support were given in a positive way. I never felt judged, always encouraged, guided, (and sometimes cajoled). Well done BDSIP!"

Dawn Jones, George Carey Church of England Primary School, SENCo

Primary SENCo, Barking and Dagenham, 2020-21 cohort

"The NASENCo Award made me realise that I am a SENDCo not a SEND-do. It allowed me to develop my leadership skills and take on a strategic role as a SENDCo."

Rhianna Peters, Year 5 and 6 Phase Leader, Parsloes Primary School

"Firstly, can I say a huge thank you for all the help, advice and support you have provided us with what has been a momentous turning point in my school. The discussions and reflections that have come about as a result of me feeding back from your conferences and networking events have been astounding; long may it continue for the change and benefit of the children."

Rhianna Peters, Year 5 and 6 Phase Leader, Parsloes Primary School

"I attended one of the Careers Events which was a STEM workshop organised by Rosalind and her team and I was blown away by the richness of the event. There was a variety of STEM industry professionals who volunteered their time to facilitate the workshops. The take-up by various schools was impressive. It was so well organised and was inspirational even for me as an adult. The offer to our schools by Rosalind’s team is outstanding and I just wanted to share my reflections."

Angelina Ikeako, Deputy Headteacher, Aspire Virtual School, LBBD, Education Core
