Vision and Aims
We are committed to growing our own talent and developing opportunities that respond to identified local needs and serve to improve the life chances of every learner in our alliance.
Our shared aims:
- ITT: to provide a personalised programme, delivered by excellent classroom practitioners, developing successful, highly motivated teachers for the future
- CPD and leadership: to share best practice and provide bespoke high-quality CPD and leadership development that inspires, challenges and motivates
- Research and Development: to develop a reflective approach to the improvement of teaching and learning, with robust, practical, outcomes
- School to school support: to build capacity, through a cross-phase collaboration of learning communities.
Established in June 2014, the Newick Teaching School is a growing network of schools from a widespread area, representing every phase of our education system, from Early Years to those in further and post 16 education in East Sussex. Our catchment is largely rural, reflecting a wide range of socio-economic affluence.
We are committed to using the best practice of our outstanding leaders and teachers to successfully deliver these six strands.
Talent management and succession planning drive every aspect of our work; developing the strengths, resources and creativity of all our teachers to ensure the progress and well-being of the pupils and students in our alliance.
The development of training teachers in this crucial initial stage of their professional development and engaging in high-quality, tailored CPD and leadership training, are at the heart of what we do.
We offer opportunities for teachers to engage in Research and development in their own school and in partnership with other schools.
This feeds into our capacity to support others through system leadership for School to School support. We can deploy SLEs, LLEs, and NLEs to schools as brokered support.
