Our strategic partners play a central role in supporting the Teaching school to meet our objectives. Since the launch our vision has been¬†to have ¬†a focus on SEND and Inclusion.¬†The strategic partners are schools who are involved in the¬†governance of the Teaching School. They help us to identify trainee¬†teacher recruitment needs, placement opportunities and training¬†demands both generally and with regard to identifying and preparing¬†suitable people for future leadership roles. Another significant¬†contribution they make is to help us support other schools through¬†the deployment of Specialist Leaders of Education and other means¬†of school-to-school support.
As we grow, the Teaching School hopes that our strategic partners¬†will have the capacity to engage with the wider research and¬†development projects that we have begun to establish at Woodfield¬†School.¬†The strategic partners meet as a board every term to monitor¬†progress and agree future priorities.
