TEAM Teaching School Alliance
What is TEAM?
TEAM is a Teaching School Alliance (TSA) led by The Redeemer Church of England Primary School. We are a group of good and outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. We are part of the government’s plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.
The lead school in the alliance prioritises:
Co-ordinating and delivering high quality school-based initial teacher training (ITT) through and with our strategic partner school Wensley Fold CE Primary School.
Providing high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
Providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across our network
In addition, the TSA helps broker support for other system leaders, co-ordinating the supply and activity of Local Leaders of
Education (LLEs), National Leaders of Governance (NLGs) and Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs). We also help prevent underperformance by supporting vulnerable schools.
