About School to School Support

The Orwell Education Alliance and its constituent schools have a long and proud track record of supporting schools both locally and wider. We have a number of experienced Headteachers, NLEs, SLEs and KPs with a broad range of knowledge and specialisms with capacity available to support other schools. The support we provide is tailored to individual school’s circumstances and needs as we find this bespoke approach gives the best results.

A typical engagement goes through phases of:

  • Assess support need including existing evidence of the challenges
  • Discuss and agree support approach, duration and measures of success
  • Deliver agreed support. This may involve one of more sessions of support and we will evaluate things together as we progress
  • Completion and review of support given and measures of success

We work collaboratively and through our contacts with other Teaching Hubs and schools, the local authority and partners we are able to help broker expertise that is not immediately available within our Teaching school.

We also have programmes covering teachers in their NQT and NQT+1 years as well as regular courses – see the section on CPD for more detail on this.
