About Us

BDSIP is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a range of professional support services to schools and other educational organisations across London and beyond. Our aim is to ensure that we add the most value when delivering any of our products to the schools and organisations we work with.

What we do

BDSIP provides outstanding professional support services to schools, including:

  • School improvement services
  • Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and inclusion services
  • Careers, work experience and employability services
  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
  • Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) services
  • Digital support services
  • Governor services


What makes us unique?

We are:

  • School-owned and school-led: we are owned by 55 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.


How we work

Because we’re school led and not-for-profit, we can deliver in whatever way will add most value – directly, in partnership with teaching schools and others, or by acting as a broker to bring trusted external organisations to our schools.

  • We work in partnership with each school to agree their priorities, tailoring our services to meet each customer’s needs.
  • All of our delivery staff have deep expertise in their chosen field, with many having worked as teachers, senior school leaders and inspectors.
  • We draw on a broad pool of trusted associates, who complement and extend our in-house capacity.
  • We build creative partnerships with trusted external organisations, bringing the best possible support and innovative services to our schools.
