About School to School Support

All Hallows was designated as a National Support School in 2013 when the Principal became a National Leader of Education. An extensive track record of providing support to schools was a significant factor in paving the way to becoming a National Teaching School in 2016. Requests for school to school support frequently come from Catholic and Anglican Diocese, the Co-operative College, and Local Authorities all of whom want All Hallows’ distinctive values and approach to embedding school improvement.

Designated Teaching Schools both offer and broker support for schools following a needs analysis. Schools may require support as a result of underperformance in a given area, a decline in results or following a disappointing Ofsted. They may simply feel the time is right for a new vision, refreshment and renewal. Perhaps they want to stay ahead in changing and challenging times.

School to School Support is provided by the Teaching School itself, or a Strategic Partner, in the Romero Teaching Schools Alliance. Through well-established relationships with other Alliances we can also sign post you to the most appropriate source of support.

All Hallows offers empathetic support developed from its own expertise and learning journey from Special Measures to twice outstanding (2011, 2014). The second Ofsted outstanding judgment validates the view that All Hallows has built a sustainable model of school improvement which can be shared with other schools.

Three types of support are on offer

  1. An aspect of whole school development, leadership or management (NLE / Senior Leader)
  2. Teaching and Learning (SSAT National TEEP Champion Centre Trainers and Coaches)
  3. Subject or Pastoral Support (NCTL Specialist Leaders of Education or SSAT accredited Lead Practitioners)

Further details of these forms of support are given below as examples only of what can be offered. A request for support always involves a meeting to scope the work, which is then tailored to meet the specific needs of the school.
