Teaching School Alliance
Most schools in West Horsham Locality that regularly work together have now formed a Teaching School Alliance. Teaching school alliances are led by a Teaching School working with Strategic Partners. Strategic Partners are schools, academies and higher education establishments which have the capacity to lead some aspects of training and development and are willing to form an alliance. Alliances may include other schools and academies from any phase or sector, universities, academy chains, LA’s, dioceses and private sector organisations.
There are 6 core areas of responsibility for teaching school alliances;
- School-led teacher training through School Direct
- CPD and leadership development
- Succession planning and talent management
- School to school support
- Specialist leaders of education (SLEs)
- Research and development
Our Alliance is led by Southwater Infant Academy Teaching School. The Strategic Partners are; Castlewood Primary, St Mary’s Cof E, Southwater Junior Academy, Hassocks Infants and Brighton University. The Alliance Schools are Trafalgar Community Infants, Shelley Primary, Arunside Primary, Warnham VA and St John’s RC.
