Connect Launch

Alliance membership demonstrates an optimistic outlook in our local primary schools.

Headteachers from over 20 local schools visited Connect TSA at Staniland Academy on Friday 24th June to hear about the plans for supporting teachers and children next year. From training school direct ITT trainees, supporting NQTs and delivering CPD to subject leaders and teachers, Connect is offering a comprehensive programme designed to support teaching and learning in local schools.

Delivered by renowned and respected consultants as well as expert teachers, the professional development is available to schools as part of their membership to the Alliance.

Discussions held by the headteachers about future provision, were consistently positive and enthusiastic about the collaboration that is available locally.

We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead working with such a buoyant and enthusiastic group of schools.
