    • Coordinating the work of the professionals within the Alliance in order to further impact on the provision our children experience
    • Being rigorous in Quality Assurance for our programmes and support
    • Offering the highest quality teacher training for School Direct, PGCE and any other relevant routes
    • Communicating effectively with all schools to work together and be fully inclusive with who wishes to work with the Alliance
    • Ensuring that all provision is fully accessible and inclusion is at the forefront
    • Developing partnership working with and between schools to raise aspiration, ambition, expectation and standards in all schools.
    • Enabling the sharing of best practice to provide accelerated pupil progress
    • Having a measurable impact model, ensuring standards and expectations

    As an alliance we are have high aspirations and share values on wanting the best for our schools and students. We believe that working collectively and collaboratively we can support each other to ensure outstanding outcomes for our students. Building leaders amongst our staff and developing learning communities is a continued focus for us in our alliance.  ITT is a very strong aspect in the alliance, one we very much value as we work relentlessly to ensure we recruit and retain teachers for the students of our schools.

    We would love to work with like minded schools across East London. If you are interested in joining our alliance please do not hesitate to contact us.
