The Gateway Teaching School Alliance was established in 2013 as a cohort 3 school. The Alliance aims to improve the quality of learning and pupil achievement by promoting excellent initial teacher training; continuous professional development; leadership development and talent management; and providing expert and tailored support to schools who seek it.
The Gateway Teaching School Alliance has a clear set of shared values. All we do recognises and respects the professional skills of all the colleagues with whom we work; seeks to develop relationships characterised by trust, openness and honest conversation.
We have particular areas of expertise in the early years foundation stage; use of data and assessment to promote learning; meeting the needs of vulnerable groups of pupils; special educational needs and English as an Additional Language, behaviour management and addressing the needs of pupils on the autistic spectrum. We also have established links to higher education, local authorities and national agencies.
