Education Support Partnership

Shiremoor Primary School has for many years worked alongside neighbouring schools in the local area, and beyond, to help and support teachers and school leaders. We have been asked to pilot many DfE programmes and to support other schools, in a range of ways, as part of the school improvement system.

 

Our Head is an NLE (National Leader of Education) and has had experience of being an Executive Head of other schools in different time periods, securing them stable platforms to move forward. As an NLE, she also works with the DFE to support schools in a variety of other ways dependent on circumstance. She has also been accredited by the Association of Education Advisors. She is passionate about supporting other leaders as she has first-hand experience of the challenges leaders face. She wants to grow new generations of leaders with the skills and confidence they will require. She is particularly keen that all children get the very best opportunities that we can provide.

 

DEVELOPING TEACHING AND LEARNING

 

We have access to a number of staff, in our own school and beyond, who are SLEs (Specialist Leaders of Education) in a range of different areas of expertise and have supported other middle and senior leaders in their own schools in a variety of capacities such as team teaching, shared planning, mentoring, coaching, lesson observations, learning walks around school, deep dives for subject areas, preparing for Ofsted and using evidence based interventions.

 

As a support school, we recognise the need for all professionals to keep up to date. We encourage staff to read and provide ideas and literature for reading, along with professional reading time. As part of our network, we invite speakers to share current thinking and ideas and liaise with colleagues around any learning from this. The EEF has partnered with us previously to roll out research to others.

 

Reading is a crucial skill for all children to ensure success in the future and we have worked alongside Reading Plus, various authors and organisations such as the EEF to create reading CPD for a number of schools.

 

 

DEVELOPING LEADERSHIP AND SUCCESSION PLANNING AT ALL LEVELS

 

We have access to a number of staff, in our own school and beyond, who are SLEs (Specialist Leaders of Education) in a range of different areas of expertise and have supported other middle and senior leaders in their own schools in a variety of capacities such as team teaching, shared planning, mentoring, coaching, lesson observations, learning walks around school, deep dives for subject areas, preparing for Ofsted and using evidence based interventions.

 

Our hugely successful Deputy and Assistant Headteachers’ Conference and network has encouraged many Deputy Heads to take the plunge into Headship when they can then be mentored by one of our supportive and experienced Heads.

 

Middle Leaders and Senior Leaders have bespoke sessions looking at their specific remits in regards to whole school progress.

 

Headteachers benefit from termly 'training' sessions where we can hear speakers from Ofsted, NAHT, DfE and other educational experts and also find out about new and exciting initiatives and opportunities. Everyone is welcome to attend and we have a great take up.

 

 

SCHOOL DIRECT IMMERSIVE TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMME

 

As a forward-thinking school, we are a great place for new teachers to learn to teach and, working in partnership with our partner schools we offer a great School Direct immersive Teacher Training Programme accredited by Northumbria University. We have a very high success rate of trainees securing jobs and often this is within the partnership.
