  3. An identified member of the senior leadership team who will have the time to drive this agenda.
  4. A commitment to work with the Local Authority’s school effectiveness team in order to ensure the pilot is delivered effectively.
  5. A commitment to demonstrating analysis of impact and the evidence to demonstrate this through a review and case study process.
