The Council closely supports School Leadership teams, Trusts, Governing Bodies and other partners to ensure local young people benefit from the very best possible educational experience in Knowsley. This includes providing support and challenge to schools including identifying if they need support from the Education Improvement Team.  Schools are also supported on a wide range of issues including attendance, admissions, the curriculum, Ofsted inspection, complaints, training and elective home education
