Tailored School to School Support

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

National Leaders of Education (NLE) 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.

Regional System Leaders (RSL) are outstanding practitioners who have a successful track record of leading effectively within their own school or across a group of schools.  The RSLs will typically support schools, complimenting NLE or LA support.

Consultant Headteachers (CHT) can be deployed to give support to a Headteacher where there has been a request from a school or where the Alliance (or LA's School Improvement Partnership) has identified a need.

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 available in their own setting 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.

How to broker support

To commission any of the Swaledale Alliance system leaders to provide S2S support please contact 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.
