Swaledale Teaching School Alliance

Introduction to the Swaledale Alliance

We are delighted to be a part of the ‘Swaledale Alliance’ – a group of over 60 local schools forming a Teaching Schools’ Alliance. This involves substantial collaborative working in a variety of areas, including staff CPD, in house support, courses, shared resources and joint projects. 

Our current roles within the Alliance

Mr Saunders, our deputy headteacher, works for the alliance as ‘Specialist Leader of Education’ – going into other schools to offer them support and advice to help improve their practice. He does this for English and PE as well as more general whole school improvement issues.
