WELCOME TO DALE NATIONAL TEACHING SCHOOL ALLIANCE
The Dale National Teaching School was developed on these key principles:
To champion the work of small, rural schools and collaborations between small schools and other schools to improve outcomes for all children.
To promote and develop the values of church schools in school improvement.
The work of the alliance is focused on areas of support in North Yorkshire and neighbouring local authorities.
There are currently 17 schools in the Alliance. The key partners of the Alliance also include The Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales, a Lead advisor for NYCC and a representative for York St John University. The Alliance members have a wealth of experience and include an NLE, SLEs and Professional Partners for newly appointed headteachers.
Current work includes supporting schools in North Yorkshire (commissioned by the Local Authority), supporting schools in Bradford (commissioned by the Diocese), providing CPD opportunities for staff in our schools and delivering the ITT School Direct Programme in partnership with York St John University.
The current team of 8 Specialist Leaders in Education (SLEs) come from a wide range of backgrounds and contexts. They can offer 1 – 15 days support on school improvement issues in all phase and age range schools and academies in North Yorkshire and neighbouring local authorities.
The underpinning principle of 'Achieving the best outcomes for all' drives all work of our small but highly effective Teaching School Alliance and is the principle aim of all work of the alliance.
