The Swale Teaching School Alliance has developed from Fulston Manors Cohort 2 bid to become a Teaching School in response to Governments White paper "The Importance of Teaching". Since March 2012 preparation has taken place to build capacity to be able to address the 'Big Six - the National Colleges priorities for Teaching Schools'.

The Teaching School company is set up with representatives from partnerships across the area including primary and secondary schools, the Local Authority,  Higher Education Providers and an international Education consultancy. Fulston Manor being the lead school that brings these institutions together to make both strategic decisions as well and management decisions that are bespoke to the needs of the local area.

The National College has identified six priority areas for Teaching Schools (The Big Six) including; School to School support, Initial Teacher Training, Research and Development, SLE designation and Brokerage and Succession Planning / Talent Management. More details regarding the role of teaching schools can be found on the
DofE website.

This website is now a key part of our communication across schools, we regularly update with the new initiatives that are developing in the local area as well as key dates and training opportunities as they arise.

As an organisation the Swale Teaching School Alliance fully supports partnership work across schools for the benefit of students at all levels. The alliance is headed up by both primary and secondary steering groups, if you wish to become involved in these groups in order to feed into the strategic vision of the alliance, please contact us.

As a team we look forward to working with schools and organisations across Swale over the coming years and please let me now of any ideas, comments or feedback on what we are doing, as always in teaching we are always looking to change things!
