Alliance and working collaboratively in a network of dynamic schools and exceptional leaders.

• Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) Support - SLEs will work with middle and/or senior leaders to undertake the following:

• Carry out diagnostic visits.

• Develop action plans, identifying key priorities and SMART targets.

The ultimate aim of SLEs will always be to contribute significantly to improving the outcomes for children through developing the capacity of peer leaders in other schools.


Leadership Curriculum – The National Professional Qualification for Middle and Senior Leadership (NPQML/SL) is a qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a leader. The programme is aimed at individuals in primary, secondary and special school settings with responsibility for leading a team. This includes key stage/subject/curriculum co-ordinators, heads of department and pastoral leaders, lead practitioners and senior leaders. This qualification is designed to support you in becoming a highly effective school leader with skills, confidence and knowledge to drive successful team performance and improve student outcomes.


NPQML/SL courses are run through the All Saints Teaching School as part of a Cluster group for the Institute of Education UCL.


Research & Development - As an essential part of our work as a Teaching School Alliance, we are increasing our involvement in educational research and developing initiatives at a range of levels. Engagement with and engagement in research is a critical element of school improvement and individual CPD for teachers and teaching assistants by focussing directly on improved pupil outcomes. Being research literate is fundamental to creating capacity within schools to engage with research be it reading or carrying out evidence based practice. ASTSA is committed to supporting schools to achieve this by enabling links with The Teacher Development Trust, The Chartered College of Teachers and The Institute of Education UCL and by offering a wealth of materials and CPD opportunities in this field.


Network Meetings – This is a chance for collaboration with your peers so you can share information and develop as a leader. Expert facilitators will help you identify priority issues in teaching and learning and professional development for your teams. You will be able to develop solutions, drawing on the expertise within the group. This strengthening of informal school-to-school support will create an effective network of information, advice and guidance.
