Overview

About the Red Kite Alliance

snipped version 1st day (Large)The Red Kite Teaching School Alliance is a partnership of Yorkshire schools and institutions (see our partners), across all phases, primary, secondary and special, from inner city locations to rural contexts, that have come together to share our skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve the learning and achievement of young people across Yorkshire and the Humber.

The Alliance provides nationally accredited and bespoke leadership, training, support, research and development opportunities to school staff across the region. We have a bank of nationally and regionally recognised experts within the Alliance that can act as a task force to help schools and individuals in need of support.

What is a Teaching School?

The Teaching Schools model is part of Government’s move to give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and development of teachers and support staff. Like Teaching Hospitals, the aim of Teaching Schools is to create a ‘self improving’ system which nurtures excellence and best practice.

Teaching Schools will lead the way in enhancing teaching and learning practices and will take much greater responsibility for coordinating and delivering ‘on the job’ teacher training, previously led by universities.
