School Improvement Group:

  • The School Improvement Group (SIG) is a group of senior officials drawn from various sections of the Department and the Inspectorate. Its primary function is to engage directly with a small number of schools that are experiencing significant difficulties in specific aspects of their work which impact on teaching and learning in the school.
