School to School Support

The Teaching School continues to provide school to school support as part of the self-improving system led education plan from the government. Our role as a Teaching School is to explore what specific bespoke support is needed for the commissioned school and then identify appropriate staff from across the Trust or within our Teaching School Alliance to implement the support.
The role of the Teaching School is to offer support in a number of ways, such as:

  • Providing an executive headteacher to work with a federation or similar organisation of schools
  • Providing an acting headteacher in a challenging school
  • Acting as the sponsor for a converted academy
  • Addressing priorities identified by Ofsted (or by other agencies) by providing additional leadership capacity to improve the quality of teaching and learning in specific subjects; year groups or with individual teachers
  • Assisting a school in developing and implementing policies designed to bring about school improvement
  • Bringing about improvements in the data analysis undertaken by schools
  • Raising attainment and standards by closing the gap for identified vulnerable and underachieving groups
