School 2 School
Teaching School Alliances are all involved in building capacity for school to school support and in working with schools and Local Authority colleagues to ensure that those resources are deployed to best effect. If a school led system is to be truly self-improving, there are real challenges about how school to school support is brokered and managed so that it is effective and makes an impact.
Teaching Schools are responsible for the designation and deployment of SLEs and are also increasingly responsible for the deployment of LLEs and NLEs in partnership with schools and LAs. At MKLA we are working to equip school leaders and teachers with the mentoring and coaching skills to support others and co-ordinating the deployment of experienced colleagues to provide support to individuals, teams and schools. There is growing evidence of the impact of this support on standards and Ofsted outcomes.
