Tailored School to School Support

The Swaledale Alliance is able to broker bespoke packages of support, designed to suit your schools' needs.

National and Local Leaders of Education are available to provide challenge and support for senior leaders in all school scenarios - from governing bodies requiring help with their headteacher performance management or to schools in Ofsted categories needing intensive support planning.

Our growing team of Specialist Leaders of Education provide high-quality support for other middle and senior leaders in their specific areas.

Our Peer Support Teachers (highly-effective teachers in their own schools) are able to be visited to demonstrate excellent classroom practice.  These PSTs have proved excellent value for local schools both to see excellent practice and then to be able to hold in-depth professional discussion with other practitioners.

We are also pleased to be able to offer school's a Partner School Review.  Our Partnership School Review Package is based on a highly successful peer review model and will provide challenge and support for schools, whilst offering robust suggested SEF grades that are objective, fair and based securely on evidence.  Please select from the menu on the left for more information.

How to broker support

To commission any of the Swaledale Alliance system leaders to provide S2S support please contact Phil Bennington, Strategy Director pbennington@swaledalealliance.org or Andrea Offord, Alliance Manager aofford@swaledalealliance.org

Or alternatively, please complete the "Request Support Form" on the navigation menu to the left.

Once the support has been completed and all paperwork returned to the Alliance admin office, any payments and/or charges will be processed.
