This is the first System Leaders brochure that has been produced collaboratively between all of the Teaching Schools in Coventry. This year, we welcome Sherbourne Fields and Castlewood School who are a newly formed joint Teaching School – Inclusive Alliance, as well as President Kennedy Teaching Alliance. Together we see this joint approach with all of our strategic and associate partners, as a crucial contribution to the provision of school to school support for all Coventry schools.
The Teaching Schools in Coventry are dedicated to ensuring that the School to School Support provides schools with a significant and extensive level of expertise. Our teaching schools have experience of supporting over 60 schools in the past few years. We strongly believe that the best way of school improvement is through school to school support. Our track record demonstrates that the support we can offer can turn a school around from an ‘Ofsted category’ to Outstanding. We have expertise at all levels of teachers, middle leaders and support staff and at National Leaders of Education (NLE) and Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) level. We can offer a variety of support and relationships that can be built on a formal and sometimes informal level through coaching, mentoring and one to one support. Please note SLEs, LLEs and NLEs are able to offer a flexible/ bespoke approach to school or networks for training provision.
We believe that our partnership approach is part of Coventry’s strategy, along with the school improvement networks, to develop a self-sustaining, school-led, school to school improvement system to raise standards and ensure all Coventry children and young people receive the best education possible.
This brochure provides a summary of the system leaders that are in place within Coventry and support/development packages available to all schools and academies for 2017/2018, along with costings for the differing types of support.
